Yeah manually running that gives me the same error. It all comes down to
the line (file-name-directory #$) which I guess should have some special
handling. The weird thing is on my "normal" emacs (GNU Emacs 25.2.2
(x86_64-pc-linux-gnu) of 2017-09-22, modified by Debian) executing this
line also gives the same error although the *Messages* shows no such
problems during load up.

Does this indicate there us some sort of special context in the way the
autoload code is run? Is file-name-handler-alist modified during
autoload processing in a way that isn't picked up by native code?
