> In the JavaScript code generated by the {{s:doubleselect}} tag (and, possibly 
> other tags), there are for loops using the following format :
> {code}
> for (m = ObservationForm_observation_countryKeyTemp.options.length - 1; m >= 
> 0; m--) {
>             ObservationForm_observation_countryKeyTemp.options[m] = null; 
> {code}
> The variable {{m}} is never defined before that. So this creates a globally 
> scoped {{m}} variable that can interfere with other JavaScript code.
> In my case it interfered with library code that is processed with a minifyer 
> (I think in this case it is Google Closure Compiler) and contains a lot of 
> one-letter variable name, such as... {{m}}.
> So I got the following error :
> {code}
> Uncaught TypeError: number is not a function
> {code}
> Which was difficult to trace since the code was minified. If the code was not 
> minified, then the error did not happen any more.
> I believe it would be enough to just use the var keyword in the loop 
> definition to remove this problem :
> {code}
> for (var m = ObservationForm_observation_countryKeyTemp.options.length - 1; m 
> >= 0; m--) {
>             ObservationForm_observation_countryKeyTemp.options[m] = null; 
> {code}
