I'm afraid I found my first severe compiler error. Unfortunately, I do not know yet how to workaround. I cannot even see how to localize it.

)abbrev package TEST Test

Exports == with
subsetToComp: List Integer -> List NNI
Implementation == add

)set stream calculate 3
s := coefficients series(q^(m-i),q=1)

\label{eq1}\left[ 1, \:{m - i}, \:{\frac{{{m}^{2}}+{{\left(-{2 \  i}- 1 \right)}\  m}+{{i}^{2}}+ i}{2}}, \: \ldots \right](1)

)lib TEST
Test is already explicitly exposed in frame initial Test will be automatically loaded when needed from /var/aw/var/LatexWiki/TEST.NRLIB/TEST eval(s.2,i,%A)

\label{eq2}m - \%A(2)
Type: Expression(Integer)

\label{eq3}m - \%B(3)
Type: Expression(Integer)

Obviously, the final lines should read m-%A and m-%B. The error seems to go away if the series is generated after the )lib command or if the series contains no other variables apart from q and i. Furthermore, %A seems to be somehow special, but I cannot reproduce this peculiarity here.

I would be very grateful if somebody could at least localize the error, so that I can determine when it happens. This bug has unfortunately tremendous implications, for example, a product like \prod_{i=1}^n f(i) is replaced by f(i)^n...

If we issue the )lib command before defining any variables, the problem goes away.

Actually core of the problem is how Expression works. More precisely Expression uses Kernel and Kernels are cached inside SortedCache?. In order to force use of newly loaded domain )lib has to invalidate all existing domains, including SortedCache? storing cached kernels. In effect all Kernel-s (hence Expression-s) stored in variables became invalid. In many cases those invalid expressions still give sensible results so one may be fooled to think that expressions should work after )lib, but this is not the case...
