Search in WebScript with guest authentication

I wrote a very simple web script in alfresco 3.0. The controller simply get a parameter from the request and set the space variable

var imageSpace = search.findNode("workspace://SpacesStore/" + args["uuid"]); = imageSpace;

and the ftl template show the images contained in the space.
Setting the authentication as user everything works fine. Setting the authentication as none I get this exception

net.sf.acegisecurity.AuthenticationCredentialsNotFoundException - A valid SecureContext was not provided in the RequestContext


org.alfresco.error.AlfrescoRuntimeException - Failed to execute search: ID:workspace\://SpacesStore/29b2aa8f\-bd8a\-4bf6\-93eb\-2d75dd3c12dd
The space is the guest home so the permissions are ok. Seems that there's some problem executing the search without the secure context. Looking the source of the RepositoryContainer class I saw that call to clearCurrentSecurityContext()

if (required == RequiredAuthentication.none)
            // MT-context will pre-authenticate (see MTWebScriptAuthenticationFilter)
            if (! AuthenticationUtil.isMtEnabled())
                // TODO revisit - cleared here, in-lieu of WebClient clear
            transactionedExecuteAs(script, scriptReq, scriptRes);
My question is: is this an error or I have to use another API to perform the search.
