With Debian 2.2.4, this causes a compilation failure:

  (eval-when (expand)
    (current-language 'scheme))

  $ guile -s main.scm
  ;;; note: source file .../main.scm
  ;;;       newer than compiled /home/rlb/.cache/guile/ccache/2.2-LE-8-3.A/.../main.scm.go
  ;;; note: auto-compilation is enabled, set GUILE_AUTO_COMPILE=0
  ;;;       or pass the --no-auto-compile argument to disable.
  ;;; compiling .../main.scm
  ;;; WARNING: compilation of .../main.scm failed:
  ;;; In procedure struct_vtable: Wrong type argument in position 1 (expecting struct): scheme

I wondered if that was expected.
