Another stupid flash question

I've already mentioned in another post that someone gave me an old SB-15 Speedlight. It is a TTL flash so it works fairly automaticall on the N80. However, in TTL mode, the ISO rating is from 25 to 400. When this flash was made apparently the FG was the only body that could take advantage of the TTL feature. My question is: is there something inherent in the flash unit that makes using 800 speed film a problem or is this dependant on the camera itself? It will work fine in its automatic and Manual modes with higher than 400 film, just not in TTL.

Does anyone know what happens when higher than recommended speed film is used when I use this flash with the N80...how about an FG?
