I see those errors in rtest16 (and no others).

If I'm not mistaken, those are recent in origin.
I looked into it a few months ago; I concluded that the problem

Ok, I made a tiny fix to the function that decides whether variables may be changed or not, and now ECL/CVS passes all tests except for one

I would not have expected much due to the high level nature of the code in Maxima and its pervasive use of special variables, but it is something.
