When starting with 'guile -l', autocompiling fails, even with an empty file.

GNU Guile

This is not happening on my build of guile 1.9.14.

I found the error:

On my computer, the directory ~/.cache/ had already been created by another program, setting another owner so that guile could not create its directories in it. Then, in the function compiled-file-name in file system/base/compile.scm, the exception from ensure-writable-dir is converted to #f, which is the argument after "string" in the error message above.

By contrast, if it compiles, the location of the .go file is written out.
