[gambit-list] reserved identifiers

scheme-r5rs renders this error message when I load SLIB and enter
(require 'http):

  *** ERROR IN "/usr/share/slib/htmlform.scm"@83.28 -- Reserved identifier can't be used as a variable: delay

The referenced SLIB code looks like this:

  (define (html:meta-refresh delay . uri) ;;this is line 83
    (if (null? uri)
        (sprintf #f "\\n<META HTTP-EQUIV=\"Refresh\" CONTENT=\"%d\">" delay)
        (sprintf #f "\\n<META HTTP-EQUIV=\"Refresh\" CONTENT=\"%d;URL=%s\">"
  	       delay (car uri))))

Should this SLIB code be portable? Is Gambit-C somehow special? Is
there a list of all reserved identifiers?

My system is:
- Ubuntu with Linux kernel 2.6.11 amd64
- Gambit-C 4.0b16
- SLIB 3a1-4.2
