Yes, that is exactly the reason.  This is a known problem and fixed in
CVS Guile.

As a workaround, you would need to unpack the archive on a Unix-like
system and then copy it to your Windows machine, renaming and-let*.scm
to and-let-star.scm.  After that, in the copied file, change the line

(define-module (ice-9 and-let*))


(define-module (ice-9 and-let-star))

and use 

(use-modules (ice-9 and-let-star))

if you want to use that module.

Or, if you do not need that source file, simply ignore it.  Guile
itself does not depend on it (AFAIK).
