Description: (PROG () (RESETLST ... (* Here''s a comment))) is a case where the value of the RESETLST isn''t being used; but this information is not conveyed to the sub-recursive compilation call on the gensymmed function for the RESETLST form.'
[lmm': Problem is that RESETLST macro has a (SETQ val lastthing). Should pass "compile.context" down somehow, but can''t really easlily do so]
