This was very well explained by William Sit in

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))

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

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

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

Maybe I missunderstood the documentation...
