I think you're right about the typo.

In the current code, !fun is known to be false, so the "cannot resolve 
native routine" error message is not even compiled in.  Putting in !*fun 
means that


produces "cannot resolve native routine", rather than "function name not 
in load table" from the test a few lines down.

I'll commit this change after testing, but I hope Duncan TL has time to 
look at it and make sure the logic is okay.
