The last paragraph of the docs for
`make-compilation-manager-load/use-compiled-handler' describes the only
potential for confusing CM that I know about.

But Matthias's error message said

That file shouldn't have an "drscheme/errortrace" variant, since it's
in the main collections. I imagine that the ".zo" was put there during
the time that Planet was confused by DrScheme's errortrace
configuration (which was pre-, and it just has to be cleaned
out manually. I had the same problem on my machine.
