Sorry I didn't replied before to your remark. I do not understand the difference, actually. I've tried to replace define-macro with define-expansion in the small example I posted on the list earlier but didn't make any difference. For what I see, even in the real program, the macro tm-define is expanded only once and the slowness come from the symbol lookup. But I will give another look at define-expand.
