Here's a simpler version, with the same bug:

#lang racket/load
(module macro racket
  (provide dlist)
  (define-syntax (dlist stx)
    #`(shared ([x (link x)])
  (struct link (l)))

(module use racket
  (require 'macro)
  (dlist 3))

I think this is a bug in `shared' used in concert with `struct'.
