It's quite confusing for INTEGERP to return T for (ROUND 2.3), but
have MOVE-WINDOW-TO--which presumably expects integers--to complain
about being given the result of (ROUND 2.3).  Also, the documentation
for ROUND suggests that it really does return an integer, not a
floating-point number that represents an integer.
