I would say this is a parser bug and should probably be reported

the fact that 'answer files(..." gets parsed as the command 'answer 
files <prompt> ..." is poor syntax parsing.

If you had a space between 'files' and the open paren, I can understand 
the issue, but any symbol connected immediately to a right paren should 
be evaluated as a function.
