Comment (by sjamaan):

 Looks like this will also fail when using the compiler:

   (import srfi-1)
   (print (assoc 'a '((a . 1)) eq?)))

 When compiling this:

 Warning: at toplevel:
   (test.scm:3) in procedure call to `scheme#assoc', expected 2 arguments
 but was given 3 arguments

 And when run, it will fail too.

 The reason is that in the compiler, we walk the toplevel using `map`,
 which calls `canonicalize-expression` on each toplevel expression.  This
 in turn accesses `(##sys#current-environment)` once at the start and then
 passes this on as the syntax environment (`se`), which gets passed along.
 When expanding an import, we update `##sys#current-environment`, but this
 won't affect `se` because that's another list (at best, it's the tail of
 the new `##sys#current-environment`).

 In the evaluator, the same happens. So you'd have to map `eval` over the
 "toplevel" expressions, instead.
