Yes, developer looks into the evaluated environment. It should detect
"m" and if "m" has been unchanged, re-assign it. This "feature" was
inspired by some internal R code in trace (I think). May be I should
drop it, it can get confusing.

If this description doesn't fit your problem than it is almost certainly
a bug.
