bug#15073: 23.4; does not byte-compile several packages with `Eager macr

From: Gregor Zattler
Subject: bug#15073: 23.4; does not byte-compile several packages with `Eager macro-expansion failure: (wrong-type-argument sequencep 769)' (due to lexical binding?)
Date: Mon, 12 Aug 2013 08:17:34 +0200

Installing emacs-snapshot results in error messages 
`Eager macro-expansion failure: (wrong-type-argument sequencep 769)'
while pre-compiling debian add-on packages like `apel' (see
attachment).  Since the errors occour with several packages I
assume a bug in emacs.

The problematic invocation is
emacs  -q -no-site-file -batch -l __myinit.el -f batch-byte-compile alist.el 
apel-ver.el atype.el broken.el calist.el emu.el file-detect.el filename.el 
install.el inv-19.el inv-23.el invisible.el mcharset.el mcs-20.el mcs-e20.el 
mule-caesar.el path-util.el pccl-20.el pccl.el pces-20.el pces-e20.el pces.el 
pcustom.el poe.el poem-e20_3.el poem-e20.el poem.el product.el pym.el 
richtext.el static.el tinycustom.el

with __myinit.el being:

#+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp 
(setq load-path (cons "." load-path))
(setq byte-compile-warnings nil)

It is possible to install emacs-snapshot as of
2013-07-24 but not as of 2013-08-04 or as of 2013-08-10.
Therefore I bisected the recent commit history.  First "bad"
commit is:

Since I don't understand elisp I'm lost here.

Thanks for your attention, Gregor
