Upstream issue. Known. Old. Same story as scsh (which is based on (and
older version of) scheme48, and inherited the issue from it).

I never looked in detail at the deep reason why it needs special
support. Maybe it is doing similar tricks to what OCaml is doing to
have unboxed gc-friendly integers (reserving one bit of the int for
use by the gc).
