At first I thought it was the read-line that was somehow causing the
problem since grepping the guile source indicates that "bad recipient"
is printed by expect.scm, but after seeing that read-line doesn't have
anything to do with expect.scm, I grepped all the source and saw that
eval.c also prints this message when you have something do wrong in a
=> cond clause, so something's probably wrong there...

Turns out, you've got an extra #f in your => clause.  I believe the =>
clause should only take one form after the test which must evaluate to
a procedure.

Hope this helps.
