The 50g AUR admits that the "storage arithmetic" functions are "quirky" when they are given lists. Here's an excerpt:

Quote:Appendix F

Parallel Processing with Lists

Parallel processing is the idea that, generally, if a command can be applied to one or more individual arguments, then it can also be extended to be applied to one or more sets of arguments. ...

Group 10: Quirky commands

A few commands behave uniquely with respect to parallel processing:

STO+. STO+ performs parallel list addition only if both arguments are lists. If one argument is a list and the other is not, STO+ appends the non-list argument to each element in the list.

? STO-, STO*, STO/. These commands perform parallel processing if both arguments are lists, but fail otherwise.
