Not all that subtle, but easy to do.  What surprises
me is that Joe's mistake did not cause an error
message.  When I try Joe's function, I get

   Signaling: (void-variable list-of-squares)

Ie., the function does not even execute successfully.
I suspect that Joe had also created an instance of
list-of-squares at top level and its value is the one
being returned.

Joe, I think you could have easily resolved your
symptom had you tried stepping through the code with
edebug.  edebug is your friend!  :)
