Catch not found - abnormal program termination

Given the module below and the function call "test_srv:start_link(foo)." 
from the Erlang shell, why does Erlang crash with "Catch not found"?
It crashes for me under v5.2.3.3, Linux on an x86 and under v5.2, 
Windows 2000.
Can anyone else reproduce it?

-export([init/1, handle_call/3, handle_cast/2, handle_info/2, 
terminate/2, code_change/3]).

start_link(Param) ->
    gen_server:start_link(?MODULE, Param, []).

init(Param) ->
    process_flag(trap_exit, true),
    (catch begin
           (catch exit(bar))

foo(_) -> ok.

handle_call(Call, From, State) -> {noreply, State}.
handle_cast(Msg, State) -> {noreply, State}.
handle_info(Msg, State) -> {noreply, State}.
terminate(Reason, State) -> ok.
code_change(OldVsn, State, Extra) -> {ok, State}.
