It does literally what you tell it to do. newLISP is a fully self reflective language which can introspect or modify itself at run-time. In your example the function f is redefining itself while executing. The old discarded definition is collected by memory management and execution runs into invalid memory causing unexpected results or crashing.

When functions modify themselves, care must be taken to not replace code parts executing at the same moment.

See about self-modifying code in newLISP on this page: http://www.newlisp.org/index.cgi?Closures the paragraphs Introspection and Stateful functions using in-place modification.

Some functions in newLISP delay memory cleanup, but not applicable in this case.
