Endless loop in guile 1.6.1 if using macros

The following program will make guile 1.6.1 enter an endless loop
while garbage collecting.

Put this into `module.scm':

  (define-module (module)
    :use-syntax (ice-9 syncase))
  (export f)
  (define-syntax ds
    (syntax-rules ()
      ((ds a) (string-append a " (by define-syntax)\n"))))
  (define (f)
    (display "In F.\n")
    (display (ds "In F")))

And this into `main.scm':

  (use-modules (module))

If you run this now:

  $ guile -s main.scm
  In F.
               <-- Endless loop!

However, if you change the

  (export f)

  (export f ds)

everything works correctly!

  $ guile -s main.scm
  In F.
  In F (by define-syntax)

Therefore I think, all macros used by exported guile functions have to
get exported too.

This bug seems to appear in guile 1.6 only, since I talked to the mixp
developer, he uses guile 1.7 and can't reproduce it.

If you have patches, could you please CC: them to me?

Happy hacking,
