Running emacs on linux you still get an error if you apply it to

Debugger entered--Lisp error: (invalid-function #<subr or>)
  apply(or nil)
  eval((apply (quote or) nil))
  eval-expression((apply (quote or) nil) nil)
* call-interactively(eval-expression)

Under XEmacs you get the slightly different 'Invalid function: #<special
form or>'.
