AccessController, AccessControlContext, and DomainCombiner

I have a question about in JDK 1.6:

The question is: the comments on "AccessController.doPrivilegedWithCombiner" method say that this method preserves the current AccessControlContext's DomainCombiner.
But the code shows that the it is the StackAccessControlContext that is tested to recuperate the combiner.

Can a stackAccessControlContext can ever have a combiner? From what i understood, a combiner can come into play only through an assigned control context, previously constructed to have a combiner, and than passed in a call like: AccessController.doPrivileged(..., context)
as the javadocs of DomainCombiner say.

Pls help me understand this. Thank you so much.
