I don't see how that sexp would cause a problem.
If package.el(c) is already loaded then that
does nothing.  And if it can't be loaded it
also does nothing (no error).  Maybe the cause
is nearby?

Anyway, consider reporting what you've found
as a bug: `M-x report-emacs-bug), providing
a more or less minimal step-by-step recipe
to repro it, starting from `emacs -Q'.  Thx.
