translate_file terminates with a misleading error message while
attempting to translate the file

--start of file -----------------
my_apply(f,x) := f(x);
--end of file -------------------

(my_apply is a silly function; nevertheless, translate_file
should handle it more gracefully.) The source of the error may
be related to the warning Maxima gives while translating my_apply.
Specifically, here is what happened:

/* Translating my_apply gives a warning. */

(C4) translate(my_apply);

f
in the form f(x)
has been used as a function, yet is a bound variable
in this context. This code being translated as :APPLY(f,[x])
