[Pharo-project] About testing that ensure works

I read what I wrote on the exception chapter and also the comments of the ensure: method
and I do not get why

to me it completely defeats the purpose of ensure: or ifCurtailed: 

Evaluate a termination block after evaluating the receiver, regardless of
	 whether the receiver's evaluation completes.

So when should ensure: be used? 
if I get an error because of a file problem will it be triggered?

I do not see how this is working in that case
