‘guix shell --export-manifest’ behaves in a strange way:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
$ guix shell rubber --export-manifest
;; What follows is a "manifest" equivalent to the command line you gave.
;; You can store it in a file that you may then pass to any 'guix' command
;; that accepts a '--manifest' (or '-m') option.

(specifications->manifest (list "rubber"))
$ guix shell texlive-base --export-manifest
;; What follows is a "manifest" equivalent to the command line you gave.
;; You can store it in a file that you may then pass to any 'guix' command
;; that accepts a '--manifest' (or '-m') option.

(specifications->manifest (list "texlive-base"))
$ guix shell texlive-base rubber --export-manifest
;; What follows is a "manifest" equivalent to the command line you gave.
;; You can store it in a file that you may then pass to any 'guix' command
;; that accepts a '--manifest' (or '-m') option.
(concatenate-manifests)
$ guix describe
Generation 214	May 02 2022 21:44:14	(current)
  guix 6b588da
    repository URL: https://git.savannah.gnu.org/git/guix.git

    commit: 6b588da368c77cde82ea2f22ca315116228777ad
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

Something breaks when combining ‘rubber’ with other packages.

Actually it looks like this was fixed in the meantime:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
$ guix time-machine --commit=2f170893719e6e9fc8e19cc5f0568e20a95d92b4 -- shell --export-manifest texlive-base rubber
;; What follows is a "manifest" equivalent to the command line you gave.
;; You can store it in a file that you may then pass to any 'guix' command
;; that accepts a '--manifest' (or '-m') option.

(specifications->manifest
  (list "texlive-base" "rubber"))
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

I’m not sure what happened, but it’s a good surprise.  :-)

Closing!

I think this issue is sporadic, rather than fixed. I've had it 
happen and then fix itself, even with the same list of packages on 
the same Guix commit. For instance, I don't encounter the issue 
with the commit you were on:

$ guix time-machine 
--commit=6b588da368c77cde82ea2f22ca315116228777ad -- shell 
--export-manifest texlive-base rubber
;; What follows is a "manifest" equivalent to the command line you 
   gave.
;; You can store it in a file that you may then pass to any 'guix' 
   command
;; that accepts a '--manifest' (or '-m') option.

(specifications->manifest
  (list "texlive-base" "rubber"))

Maybe we could keep this bug open?

Uh, weird.  I do encounter it like this:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
$  guix time-machine --commit=6b588da368c77cde82ea2f22ca315116228777ad -- shell --export-manifest texlive-base rubber
;; What follows is a "manifest" equivalent to the command line you gave.

(concatenate-manifests)

Yes, done.  That’ll need some investigation…

Thanks for the heads-up!

Turns out the problem occurs if the given environment has been cached by
a previous invocation (thanks to Marek Felšöci for putting me on the
right track!).

Fixed in 925a57c5d04553ff6c514867348e7d3c5c22ca66.
