Actually this is the time in which ECL is already clever enough to
constant-fold the #'/ and detect that the output of that function can not
be saved. Changing the function to
(DEFUN foo () (PROG () (locally (declare (notinline /)) (RETURN (/ 1.0
fixes the problem, because ECL no longer tries to precompute the quotient.
I am unsure about how to fix this, or even whether this needs to be fixed...
