Aargh - somebody (maybe you?) had run into this a long time ago and I
had suggested a possible fix, but with the demise of the gmane site, I
cannot find the thread - how do people search the ML nowadays?

In any case, there is a basic error in ob-scheme.el, line 176 (at
least in the version that I have):

        (setq result (if (or (string= result "#<void>")
                             (string= result "#<unspecified>"))
                       (read result)))))   ;;;<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<

The (read result) is bogus: it tries to use the emacs lisp reader to
parse a string that contains a scheme expression.

IIRC, I suggested changing it to just result:

        (setq result (if (or (string= result "#<void>")
                             (string= result "#<unspecified>"))

but I didn't (and still don't) know if that breaks anything else.

Plus I'm on a machine that doesn't have geiser so I can't even test the basic 
so I hope I've got it right. I'll try to follow up tonight from a machine that 
geiser installed.
