  why then this work:
  (global-set-key "\C-cl" "address@hidden") ;copy ling C-c l

OK, I guess it isn't to be expected.  The question boils down to the
behavior of the function `define-key', which is what `global-set-key'
calls (without any intervening typechecking) and which _does_ allow
"strings treated as macros".  So, I have no idea.

Evaluating this works:

(execute-kbd-macro "\C-xh\M-w")

But anyway, my hint should work for you.  Maybe someone else
can say whether you found a bug or not.

I just checked in the CVS version of Emacs. It seems to work.

I saw in one of the messages "Global-set-key" instead of "global-set-key" but I guess that was just a typo?
