With SaxonSA 8.4, I'm running into a funny runtime type-checking problem.

I have a template in mode "A" with match="inType", as="outType".
In this simple test, the template "A" doesn't do anything except
apply-templates, selecting "current()" with mode = "B".

The template in mode "B" has the same "as" and "match"
attributes as "A" and it creates an "element" of the required type.

The funny thing is that I'm running into an error when the template in mode "A"
is matched and it does an "appy-templates" in mode "B".  The "return" type
of the template in mode "B" seems to get lost, becoming "xdt:untyped", although it
seems to hold onto the name of the element that was generated.

Error on line ...
  XP0006: Required type of result of template
  match="element(*,defiml:DL_LoanOrFacilityParty)" is element(*, ApporteurAffaireType);
  supplied value has type element(ApporteurAffaire, xdt:untyped)

If I go into mode "B" directly with out the indirection by the template in mode "A", I don't run into this error.

Any ideas on this one?

            </xsl:if>
        </xsl:element>
    </xsl:template>

Any suggestions appreciated.
