What values do you expect from successive calls to K?

K captures S, a fluid, along with the dynamic extent.  There is only a
single dynamic extent to which K resumes, and only one value
associated to the fluid S within that.  Subsequent calls to K do not
generate a new dynamic extent, so it makes sense that modifications to
the fluids value persist.  This example behaives as expected according
to my understanding of fluids.

Am I missing something?
