Unless I made a mistake, the fix I made does nothing at all except
avoiding an error when the car of a list is not a symbol: the rest of the
code proceeds as it did before and (since the modifier lists are in
general handled correctly) does the right thing.  If it is a symbol,
exactly the same code is executed, merely with certain side-effect-free
expressions evaluated in a slightly different order.
