Hm, thanks, yes I can see how it is implemented now and I can see good
reasons for optimizing it this way. However the manual does not say
that byte compilation removes the check during execution if primitives
are adviced or not.

And I am a bit irritated that it doesn't since I trusted the manual.... ;-)

Could we please correct the manual?

And could we as soon as possible please remove the possibility to
defadvice primitives at all? The kind of bugs produced by different
execution paths for evaled and byte compiled code is rather difficult
to nail down.


(I have to do a totally different workaround instead of defadvice
widen. But that is another problem.)
