Problem with Contexts

I experienced the following problem when defining Contexts:
Mathematica 2.2 for NeXT
Copyright 1988-93 Wolfram Research, Inc.
-- NeXT graphics initialized --
In[1]:= Begin["Alice`"]
Out[1]= Alice`
In[2]:= x=1;y=2;x+y
Out[2]= 3
In[3]:= Begin["Bob`"]
Out[3]= Bob`
In[4]:= x=11;y=22;x+y
Out[4]= 33
In[5]:= Begin["Alice`"];y-x
Out[5]= 11
In[6]:= y-x
Out[6]= 1
In[7]:= Exit
For the In[5] I try to change the Context and do a calculation in
the same command, but the calculation is done using the previous
Context ("Bob"). However, the Context was changed as noted when
the calculation is repeated (In[6]). Is this a bug or am I missing
something about how Contexts are used and defined.
BTW--I found the same problem when using the Notebook interface BUT
when I concatenate the commands on separate lines it works okay--
Begin["Alice"];y-x
doesn't work, but
Begin["Alice"];
y-x
(the Shift-Return)
does work.
Thanks for the help,
Charlie
