You should have errors in your log files when getting this kind of

I' have to put an appropriate comment in the docs about that.

It is YOU that have to assure that the continuations gets resumed in the 
same context. As you see in the code pasted above current implementation 
of ContinuationsManager requests the flow interpreter to identify 
itself. Interpreter ID is being compared to the one stored in 
continuation - if it doesn't match you won't be able to resume it.

What you request is not a trivial change. Currently it is the 
interpreter that is resolved first (based on current sitemap context). 
Then it is interpreter's responsibility to lookup and resume a proper 
continuation. I do not know if it is possible to invert the behaviour:
- first the continuations gets looked up
- the sitemap context is changed based on the interpreter info stored in 
continuation (the id is not enough as it is a resource path that would 
have to get parsed every time)
- the flow interpreter bound to sitemap is being invoked with ready to 
go WebContinuation.
