#236 closed defect (fixed)

Bad error message for malformed forms

Reported by: Stassats Owned by: ehuelsmann

Evaluating (1 2 3) yields "The value 1 is not of type LIST." The fix for this is trivial, attached.

And compiling:

(compile nil '(lambda () (1 2 3)))
; Caught ERROR:
;   COMPILE-FORM unhandled case (1 2 3)

#<THREAD "interpreter" {1775831E}>: Debugger invoked on condition of
  The value #<EQUAL HASH-TABLE 0 entries, 11 buckets
  {23F3329A}> is not of type STRUCTURE-OBJECT.

(In [14081]) Re #236: prepare to offer restarts from inside the compiler.

Note: Restarts, when used to replace forms, need to be in pass1 because that's

where we inject variable references, etc.
