The handler is called in the dynamic environment of the call to raise , **** except that the current exception handler is that in place for the call to with-exception-handler that installed the handler being called. The handler's continuation is otherwise unspecified. **** According to this, the continuation of the exception handler can't be the ***same*** as the continuation of raise because the dynamic environment is different (recall that the dynamic environment is part of the continuation).
