An open bug, yes; hrm.  Adding Mark Harig to the Cc, who had a plan for
fixing this.

Heh.  Well, primitive-load is a load that doesn't autocompile, doesn't
load .go files, and doesn't run within a module excursion.  The
%load-hook business is another bug, reported recently:, but not yet
resolved.  I'll see about fixing this shortly.

BTW, I see you are still on 2.0.0.  How about beta testing one of these:

2.0.1 will come out shortly, but it would be good if you could report
bugs on the snapshots.
