Preserve `this` with recursive setImmediate()

Salam (means Hello:))

In my node.js app, I need to use setImmediate() to recessively call a function and keep its context intact for next execution.

Consider following example:

var i=3;

function myFunc(){
    console.log(i, this);
    --i && setImmediate(arguments.callee);



3 // a regular `this` object
2 { _idleNext: null, _idlePrev: null, _onImmediate: [Function: myFunc] }
1 { _idleNext: null, _idlePrev: null, _onImmediate: [Function: myFunc] }

As you can see, after first execution this is overwritten. How should I work around this?
