Actually, the #<procedure string-index (str a-char)> suggests it's
from strsrch.scm in SLIB. Strangely enough, in the Debian SLIB package
that I'm using, string-index was renamed to strsrch:string-index, so I
can't duplicate your problem.

It seems that either SLIB or Guile's SLIB support should be changed, but
I'm not sure how.
