It may not have to do with the compiler at all, but with a variable
(mark-diary-entries-in-calendar) being reset by the evaluation, which
caused the problematic code not to be executed.  I cannot reconstruct
what precisely happened (and what I did), but I'm continuing the
investigation (there seem to be other problems as well).

I did not find anything that looked suspicious.
