Patch file

When a global variable references another global variable, and the second global variable has not been evaluated yet, XslCompiledTransform will use the current node set as the context when evaluating the global variable, instead of the root node set as the context. In many cases, this results in incorrect behavior.

I have attached a possible fix.
