These are not the Scheme unquote and eval, but strees (thus TeXmacs
documents) whose label is unquote and eval. It didn't seem too far
fetched that the TeXmacs macro-expander unquote would turn the result
of <quote-arg|x> in the result of <arg|x>, or that an extra round of
evaluation would do that.

As far as I can test, even with quote-arg, it happens if you return
your parameter, or anything based on your parameter.

I tried all combinations of

(tm-define (foo t)
  (:secure #t)

(tm-define (foo t)
  (:secure #t)
  (texmacs-exec t))

(tm-define (foo t)
  (:secure #t)
  (list 'eval t))

(tm-define (foo t)
  (:secure #t)
  (list 'unquote t))




interactive edit is broken with all of these 8 things. So for now,

(tm-define (foo t v)
  (:secure #t)
  (list 'arg v))


although a bit ugly works best. Thanks for all the information!

Ah, it is called texmacs-exec. Thanks.
