[xslt] Variable scope in for-each


while trying to port an application from Linux to Windows (using libxml 10019 and libxslt 20423 on both machines), I got a "redefining name" error on Windows. We're using something like the following quite often:

<xsl:for-each select="./someNode">
 <xsl:variable name="id" select="./elem[ id]"/>

After looking into the specs I'm not quite sure how to interpret the section on variables in conjunction with for-each. It's clear that a variable binding is visible for the following siblings and its descendants. But how to interprete that inside for-each elements? Is the for-each loop re-entered for every node letting the binding become invisible or not? Thus, is the above construct correct XSLT or not?
