Subject [jira] Created: (XALANJ-2324) XPath function last() gives wrong when select has a predicate

XPath function last() gives wrong when select has a predicate

                 Key: XALANJ-2324
                 URL: http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/XALANJ-2324
             Project: XalanJ2
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Xalan-interpretive, XPath-function
    Affects Versions: Latest Development Code
            Reporter: Brian Minchau

Here is the testcase, the input XML is this:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>  

The stylesheet is this:
<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0"  
     <xsl:output method="text" encoding="UTF-8"/>  
     <xsl:template match="author">  
     <xsl:for-each select='(child::*)[not(self::initial)]'>  
   Child element <xsl:value-of select="position()"/>  
        of <xsl:value-of select="last()"/>  
        Element name: <xsl:value-of select="name()"/>  

The current, and incorrect output is this:
   Child element 1  
        of 3  
        Element name: firstname  
   Child element 2  
        of 3  
        Element name: lastname 

The selected elements are correct, but the last() function is returning 3 rather than 2.
If the for-each is changed to this:
     <xsl:for-each select='(child::*)[not(self::junk)]'>  
it iterates over the 3 children correctly (there is no child named 'junk' so the predicate
does not reduce the sequence selected by (child::*), but in this case last() returns 4.  In
both cases one greater than it should.

With no predicate things work fine.
