Yes, in this example it works without this --defined announcement.

I stumbled on this with something more complex, which for some
 reason I don't understand yet ignores a wanted transformation
 in a #ifdef..#endif, except if I add such a --defined.
Only then it honours my transformation, but fails with this bug.

I certainly will try to work around somehow.
