Hello Michael


Thank you for looking into this. From the name of the zip it is probably version I only downloaded this a couple of days ago so thought I had an up to date version. I will try and locate and give it a try.


Best regards

Saxon is known to fix this problem in some environments, though it's impossible to be certain that it fixes it in all environments, since the ways of doing class loading are so many and varied. Which release are you using? It doesn't look like judging by the line numbers.
