Description (partial)

When using packet tracer to troubleshoot a packet or flow, packet-tracer will show the egress interface of the current AND subsequent contexts when the ASA is 'chaining' contexts with shared interfaces.  This may cause a user to believe the egress interface classifications are wrong and delay/inhibit troubleshooting efforts.

This is observed when using packet-tracer to identify an egress packet in an ASA in multi-context mode when the packet ingresses and egresses more than one context on the same physical ASA.
