The tone of your message is well-deserved... I switched to "help me"
mode long before I should have because I was under pressure of time.

In fact, the function in question /already/ had a bunch of my own
variables declared global in it... I thoughtlessly jumped to the
conclusion that the install was at fault because i have reason not to
trust it.

My other point still stands though (I think) - that marking a variable
as "global" to "pull it in to scope" is a clunky, ass-backwards way of
doing things.
