There might be a more greedy match before this one, or in a 'higher' sitemap (= closer to
root dir).

Or could be that you just need to use ** instead of *?

Once again: most obvious option is document(), but because of the earlier mentioned bug, you
not want to use it. Though, placing your <generate type="directory"/> in a <pipeline

type="non-caching"> might circumvent the bug. Haven't tested.

Alternatively, you could add a literal <xi:include> in your xsl and transform it with
type="xinclude"> _before_ using it in a <transform type="xsl">. Much more code though.
It will more 
or less look like this:

<map:match pattern="get-images.xml">
   <map:generate type="directory">
     <map:parameter name="include" value="*.jpg"/>
   <map:serialize type="xml"/>

<map:match pattern="**.xsl">
   <map:generate src="{1}.xsl"/>
   <map:transform type="xinlcude"/>
   <map:serialize type="xml" />

<map:match pattern="process-images/**">
   <map:generate src="cocoon:/{1}" />
   <map:transform src="cocoon:/process-images.xsl"/>
   <map:serialize type="xml" />

<!-- and in your xsl -->

<xsl:stylesheet ...>

   <xi:include src="cocoon:/get-images.xml" parse="xml" /> <!-- syntax correct? -->

   <xsl:variable name="images" select="document('')/dir:directory/dir:file" /> <!--
make sure to 
define the dir namespace -->

   <xsl:template match="foo/@image-url">
     <xsl:variable name="image" select="$images[@name = current()/@image-url]"/>
     <xsl:variable name="image_temp" select="$images[@name = 
concat(substring-before(current()/@image-url, '.jpg'), '_temp.jpg')]"/>
       <!-- sorry, bit lazy -->
       when $image insert image url
       when $image_temp insert image_temp url
       otherwise ???

Once again, haven't tested, but should work i think... :)
