OOOPS, there was a typo, it should read: "Plus" should be an undefined function." not Print of course.
One more thing, "dynamic scoping" is well defined, it means: the value of a variable is temporariliy stored away and set to undefined until the current scope is left. This is although true for all calls made from the current scope.
Therefore, the above behaviour is a BUG!
