I believe this to be a bug.

Executing a kbd-macro inside a atomic-change-group signals an error,
if the group gets cancelled via `cancel-change-group'.

(setq buffer-undo-list (list nil))
  (execute-kbd-macro "foobar.sFOOBAR"))

I believe the problem is self-inserting-command popping the nil
from buffer-undo-list, which in turn makes cancel-change-group
believe it's understandging of the list became corrupted.

I think it's safe to ignore the car, if it's nil, and proceed on
the cdr.  The next command will push a new nil anyway (as far as
I can tell).

Anyway, that's what this is based upon :
