I see those errors in rtest16 (and no others).
I am working w/ Maxima and ECL from their respective
CVS repos as of today, on Linux (Centos 4).
If I'm not mistaken, those are recent in origin.
I looked into it a few months ago; I concluded that the problem
was something to do with special variables.

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.
