In fact I have reported it as a bug making a mistake because I presumed that
Probe REDUCE second [one two]
was the same of
probe REDUCE TWO
Instead "second [one two]" returns 'TWO rather than TWO which is a thing you
don't notice in the consolle as the ouput is TWO in both situations.

The latter is the answer I have been searching for. Thanks in advance
