Re: Global object/s



so each script init is run with a distinct (global) object as 'this'.

1. How do we resolve names which are defined in multiple global objects?
GlobalObject::getVariableAndTargetByMultiname searches through all
until it finds the first one, but
there is no well defined order.

2. The spec says that if I use Function.call and pass 'null' as the
first parameter,
then _the_ global object should be used as 'this' of the called function.
But which one?
Not all function calls originate from some script init, so I don't see
a good way
to determine the global object that we should use.
See for example testcase tamarin-SWF/ecma3/Function/e15_3_4_4_1_rt_.swf

Unfortunatelly none of our testcases generate an DoABC tag with
multiple scripts,
and I don't know how to write one. I only encountered them with YT.
