Hi Maxim,

>> here’s what I did in the REPL:
>> scheme@(guile-user)> ,m (ice-9 exceptions)
>> scheme@(ice-9 exceptions)> (define (my/guile-system-error-converter key args)
>>   (apply (case-lambda
>>           ((subr msg-args msg errno . rest)

Here I changed the order: “msg-args” appears before “msg”.  I don’t know
why the converter that’s currently in Guile assumes that the message
comes first.

>> scheme@(ice-9 exceptions)> (set! guile-exception-converters (acons 
>> 'system-error my/guile-system-error-converter guile-exception-converters))

guile-exception-converters is a lookup table in (ice-9 exceptions).  It
associates error keys with converter procedures.  Since
canonicalize-path throws a 'system-error I chose to only update the
'system-error association.  I didn’t want to affect all the other
converter procedures that end up using the common converter; maybe they
should be affected — I don’t know because I don’t have any test cases
other than canonicalize-path.

I cannot parse your sentence, so I’m not sure what you mean.

I think we should add tests of different exceptions with different keys
to be sure that modifying the common handler doesn’t have any unexpected
