Indeed, you are right.  Commit 6c293a809bba57d4363517fa0bd8ebc34247c577
on core-updates should fix this problem.  Thanks for the report.

However, let's leave this bug report open for now.

The reason is that debbugs.gnu.org mishandled this report in two ways:

(1) This bug is not listed on <https://bugs.gnu.org/guix>, although
    <https://bugs.gnu.org/31187> shows it as an open bug for Guix.

(2) The original bug report was never delivered to me, although I'm
    subscribed to <address@hidden>.  If Eric hadn't CC'd me on his
    original submission, I might not have seen it.  I was unable to find
    out the bug number until I asked Eric directly, so unfortunately the
    commit does not reference the bug number.

I've reported these problems to the FSF sysadmins, and I'd like to give
them an opportunity to diagnose the problem before we change the status
of this bug.
