You are correct.

Russell's code did, however, uncover a bug in MCL's compilation of register

A compiled register trap of the form (register-trap :Dn x :An y ...)
neglected to unbox x before saving it in two halves on the vstack.
Only 5 traps are of this form, which is probably why noone has
noticed this bug before:

  #_TempNewHandle, #_SysEnvirons, #_Secs2Date, #_SintRemove, #_SetTimeOut

"register-trap-patch" will be part of patch 2 for MCL 2.0. I'll send
it to anyone who needs to use one of these 5 traps before patch 2 ships
(a while).
