[Maxima] pdiff and chain rule problem

I would like to obtain the derivative of f(g(x)) with respect to x, using the chain rule, without declaring dependencies. So I thought I'd try pdiff.
g (x) f (g(x))
ok, but now I want it back into the 'normal' diff format
d d !
(-- (g(x))) (------- (f(g16016))! )
dx dg16016 !
!g16016 = g(x)
I was hoping on an answer without the '16016' stuff. A bug?
