I have tested it with guile-1.6.3 and recent CVS HEAD; both work fine.
What version are you talking about and what goes wrong?

(Btw, there is also module-map which might be more natural to use in
place of module-for-each.)

Yeah, that's right.  Hopefully, it is 'reasonably' stable and people
are happy to switch over to the new ways because they are obviously
better.  That seems not to be true in your case, unfortunately, so I
like to know more.

I find this not to be true, but it is indeed tricky to reason about
the context in which modules are loaded.

There certainly is a solution, but you need to specify your problem
more precisely, I'm afraid.

What was better about it in what versions?
