Question with binding

Just to further the argument about redefining primative functions, TI's PC 
Scheme behaves like this:

(define + 
  (lambda (x y n)
    (modulo (+ x y) n)))

(+ 1 2 3)               ==>  0

(define blah
  (lambda ()
    (+ 1 2 3)))

(blah)                  ==>  6

I realise that + is treated specially, but this seems to be an undesirable 
(and inconsistant) way to handle primative function redefinition.  What's
more, the values of pcs-integrate-integrables and pcs-integrate-primatives 
don't seem to affect this behavior.  Comments anyone?
