In commit f44c7aaccd1942b8bf7916e4c8bb0f8f1abfcb58 I added an explicit
‘compile-file’ call to update the cached .go file for the user’s config,
when on 2.2.3.

This should solve the problem most of the time.  The only remaining
issue is if you’re using 2.2.3 and your config spans several modules:
only the main .scm file is rebuilt, so there could be ABI issues in the
other modules.

I’m closing the bug now.
