(values 'foo) is not supposed to return 'foo.

Instead, values returns a closure:

MIT/GNU Scheme running under MacOSX
Image saved on Saturday June 23, 2007 at 8:26:50 PM
Release 7.7.90.+ || Microcode 15.1 || Runtime 15.7

1 ]=> (values 'foo)

;Value 1: #[compiled-closure 1 ("global" #xd) #x5e #x2726de #x4cd298]

A related bug is in call-with-values, when the producer returns a value (without calling values):

1 ]=> (call-with-values (lambda () 1) list)

;The object 1 is not applicable.
;To continue, call RESTART with an option number:
; (RESTART 2) => Specify a procedure to use in its place.
; (RESTART 1) => Return to read-eval-print level 1.
