Context lost when awaiting on custom thenable #37

Not sure if this is an issue or expected behavior, but figured I'd ask. I've been tracking down a bug with mongoose and express-http-context, and found that if you use await with a custom then() function, context goes away. Here's an example:

const clsHooked = require('cls-hooked');

const session = clsHooked.createNamespace('mytest'); => {
  run().catch(err => console.log(err));

async function run() {
  session.set('test', '42');

  const thenable = {
    then: (resolve, reject) => {
      console.log('Session', session.get('test')); // undefined
      return Promise.resolve('').then(resolve, reject);

  await thenable; // This is the problem, context gets lost in `then()`

  // This works fine
  await new Promise((resolve, reject) => {
    console.log('Session2', session.get('test')); // 42

Any ideas as to what might be going on here?

@vkarpov15 ! Sorry I haven't gotten to this. I'm a little fuzzy on what mongoose's exec() does under the hood but my first thought is that a custom then() would need to be wrapped similar to how cls-bluebird does it.
