That's not a bug. See


which also explains why overiding is a bad idea.

The letter ends with the following note on the doc.txt page of the
SRFI collection:

NOTE:  (require (lib "list.ss" "srfi" "1"))
        Please move this line further up in the doc-page for srfi.
        On a normal size screen the special info about srfi-1 doesn't
        appear on the first page.

(Hm - now I can see the heading "NOTE on SRFIs with name conflicts", but
  since then I gave gotten a bigger screen)
