As the docs state, check_test is a callable that returns True if the checkbox should be checked for a specific value. The default implementation doesn't do anything complicated and shouldn't raise exceptions. If user-provided callables break, it django shouldn't catch the error silently.
My proposal is to simply remove that bare except and let check_test raise exceptions.
The current behaviour is actually expected and tested:
I still think it's quite a bad API and should be changed. Since that exception-swallowing behaviour isn't documented (although tested), backwards compatibility isn't that much of a concern.
