Note how fizz iterations have the wrong mode after the first iteration of buzz.

As in the await code, one would expect the body of each generator to use the same context, but they do not:

fizz(fizz) buzz(buzz)
fizz(buzz) buzz(buzz)
fizz(buzz) buzz(buzz)

The first fizz iteration is the only one with the correct mode - fizz(fizz).

The expected output is:

fizz(fizz) buzz(buzz)
fizz(fizz) buzz(buzz)
fizz(fizz) buzz(buzz)

Where each iteration of both generators occurs in the correct context.
