[plt-scheme] expansion of internal define v. set!

The problem is of course different for top-level, module-level and even
class-level define's. These definitions don't open a new scope like 
definitions. Depending on which context you choose, you get different
errors or results. Once again, an error in a top-level-like contexts for
define gets turned into a result when you do it locally. Internal 
don't have top-level meaning, and it shows when you have errors.
They get masked. If shows when you have macros. Different names
get masked. -- Matthias
