According to a poster on Flyertalk, this was flight 2594,  DEN-LGA.

This is a monthly occurence at AA.....
It seems to be a monthly occurrence at about every major airline. It's more concerning when they blow a slide and nothing happens.

Ever see one come up a jetbridge? I've seen it after the fact. Having one go off in a small confined area is a little more dangerous than being underneath one.
 
These accidental deployments are mechanic, pilot, flight attendant or fleet mistakes?

all of the above. We track it for the year at TechOps. 
 
Slide re-packs cost a lot of money.
