I do not know if this is a bug, but it could be. I am a bit surprised that let symbols get interned. Try this:

  (intern-soft "this-was-no-symbol")

It returns nil. Now evaluate this

  (let (this-was-no-symbol))

Then evaluate the intern-soft line again. Now the variable is interned.

Should let symbols be interned this way?
