As an alternative to applying the source patch, you could work around the problem by redeclaring the default namespace using
on the instruction where saxon:evaluate is called.

I have downloaded the source code and the can see where the code needs fixing, but am having problems with the re-compilation.


I am using Eclipse and have got the project set up etc, but am unsure of what extra libraries I need and where to get them from!


Sorry for being a pain.
