Weird GFCI wiring


I have power coming into a GFCI outlet in my bathroom. Power then goes to the bathroom switch which controls the bathroom light and a switch in the hallway which controls the hallway lights. Everything works fine except when I trip the GFCI outlet. When it's tripped the hallway lights don't work (I suspect this is normal) but the bathroom light gets constant power! What did I do wrong?

A quick & dirty.....
seems like hallway lights wired to "Load", bath room light wired to "Line"
reverse the wiring & everything should be fine
well except for the fact that dedicated bathroom circuit should only power the bathroom.

I couldn't figure out how to wire that bathroom light, so it would fail as the OP described.
