With r13045 (http://trac.common-lisp.net/armedbear/changeset/13045) I
committed the change to DEFUN in compiled files, so now it should
return the function name in all cases. I verified this doesn't break
any unit test in our suites. If you want, I can backport both this
change and the previous one (13032) to the 0.23 branch.
