This was very well explained by William Sit in
http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/axiom-developer/2004-06/msg00087.html

Therefore, this bug is really identical to bug #9297

box promises that its argument is not evaluated. However this does not work always, it seems:

(1) -> box(sum(i,i=1..n))

2
n + n
(1) ------
2
Type: Expression Integer

even worse:
(2) -> sum(box(i),i=a..b)

(b + 1)b - aa - 1
(2) -----------------
2

Maybe I missunderstood the documentation...
