Summary0004771: Dynlink.allow_only should call default_available_units or docs should be updated
DescriptionDynlink.allow_only filters the *current* list of units available to dynlink'd modules. This is slightly counterintuitive for subsequent calls to allow_only (e.g. in the toplevel) where one might reasonably assume that:

Dynlink.allow_only ["Pervasives"];;
(* Dynlink.loadfile a file and get an exception about module String *)
Dynlink.allow_only ["Pervasives"; "String"];;

meant that Pervasives and String are now both available when in fact only Pervasives will be.

Either allow_only should call default_available_units before filtering or the documentation should be clearer as to how the function behaves.

Fix the docs.

It seems that the behavior is different in native code (allow_only calls init() first).
