The problem here is that the type analysis pass assumes that '<' takes
exactly two arguments.  In common cases, this works out okay because the
earlier 'expand-primitives' pass has rules that convert uses of '<' into
chains of binary '<' operations.  However, that only works when '<' is
in operator position at the time of the 'expand-primitives' pass.  In
the case of 'cute', this is not the case:

  scheme@(guile-user)> ,expand (cute < 1 <> 2)
  $1 = (let ((t-86 2) (t-85 1) (t-84 <))
    (lambda (t-96) (t-84 t-85 t-96 t-86)))

Then the partial evaluator does its thing:

  scheme@(guile-user)> ,optimize (cute < 1 <> 2)
  $2 = (lambda (t-113) (< 1 t-113 2))

and then the type analysis pass fails because its type-checkers and
type-inferrers for '<' (line 723 of language/cps/types.scm) assume that
it's a binary operation.
