[plt-scheme] Resources in the transformer environment

So, I've attempted to implement the macro suggested below:

Here is the code:

  (define-syntax (with-database stx)
    (syntax-case stx ()
      ((_ (host port username password schema) body-expr ...)
       (dynamic-wind (lambda ()
                       (display "opening transformer DB connection\n")
                       (current-connection (connect
(syntax-object->datum #'host)

(syntax-object->datum #'port)

(syntax-object->datum #'username)

(syntax-object->datum #'password)

(syntax-object->datum #'schema))))
                     (lambda ()
                       (local-expand #'(dynamic-wind (lambda ()
"opening runtime DB connection\n")

(current-connection (connect host port username password schema)))
                                                     (lambda ()
                                                       body-expr ...)
                                                     (lambda ()
"closing runtime DB connection\n")
                     (lambda ()
                       (display "closing transformer DB connection\n")
                       (close (current-connection)))))))

When I attempt to use it, however, there is a problem:

(module foo mzscheme

  (require (lib "dbo.ss" "dbo"))

  (with-database (<host> <port> <username> <password> <schema>)
    (define project%
      (dbo-class* "project" object% ()

    (define o (make-object project%))
    (define ps (send o find #:all))
    (display ps))

...results in...

opening transformer DB connection
closing transformer DB connection
compile: identifier used out of context in: local-accessor

Perhaps I'm expanding the body in the wrong context?
