scm_with_continuation_barrier returning #f on throws ?

Hello !

With guile-1.8.7, scm_with_continuation_barrier does not seam to return
SCM_BOOL_F on error. I did this :

static void *load_file(void *filename)
    scm_c_primitive_load((char const *)filename);
    return NULL;


SCM res = scm_with_guile(load_file, "a_file_that_doesnt_exist");

Thus, scm_c_primitive_load displays an ERROR message and throws out.
But scm_with_guile, ie. the underlying scm_with_continuation_barrier,
returns 0x0.

Is the bug in the doc, in the code or once again in my head ?
