I experienced the same problem and reported it to the emacs-devel
list as:

Your workaround is right but similar problems might happen in
other situations.  So then I decided to use this one in the
~/.emacs file until the bug is fixed:

(or (functionp 'or)
    (defadvice functionp (around workaround-bug (object) activate)
      "Workaround bug."
      (or ad-do-it
          (setq ad-return-value (and (symbolp object) (fboundp object))))))
