To fix the problem (which I also believe is in `load' or maybe between
`load' and `openp'), I need to better understand some of the code in
`load'.

Would someone who knows please help me answer the following questions
regarding the fragment below?  Stefan? Yidong? Richard? anyone?

The questions are:

  . Why do we test for ".elc" OR non-zero return value from
    safe_to_load_p?  What is the purpose of handling files without the
    .elc extension as byte-compiled?

  . Was safe_to_load_p intended to return non-zero value for invalid
    file descriptors such as -2?


  if (!bcmp (SDATA (found) + SBYTES (found) - 4,
             ".elc", 4)
      || (version = safe_to_load_p (fd)) > 0)
    /* Load .elc files directly, but not when they are
       remote and have no handler!  */
    {
      if (fd != -2)
        {
          struct stat s1, s2;
          int result;

          GCPRO3 (file, found, hist_file_name);

          if (version < 0
              && ! (version = safe_to_load_p (fd)))
            {
              safe_p = 0;
              if (!load_dangerous_libraries)
                {
                  if (fd >= 0)
                    emacs_close (fd);
                  error ("File `%s' was not compiled in Emacs",
                         SDATA (found));
                }

1);
            }

          compiled = 1;

          result = stat ((char *)SDATA (efound), &s2);
          SSET (efound, SBYTES (efound) - 1, 'c');

            {
              /* Make the progress messages mention that source is newer.  */
              newer = 1;

              /* If we won't print another message, mention this anyway.  */
              if (!NILP (nomessage) && !force_load_messages)
                {
                  Lisp_Object msg_file;
