[Chicken-users] catching errors at macro expansion time

It looks like "handle-exception" cannot handles exceptions happening at macro
expansion time:

(define-macro (raise-error bool)
  (if (eq? #t bool)
      (error "error inside macro!"))

(handle-exceptions exn (print "error caught")
                   (raise-error #t))

The error is NOT caught. Is this the right behavior?

I am writing tests for macros, and I want to catch the
error to make sure that the macro gives the expected 
error message. Any suggestion?
