The saxon:line-number() function existing in EXSLT returns 0.

Reproduce code:
header('Content-type: text/plain');
$xmlStr = '<root>
$xslStr = <<<XSL
<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0" xmlns:xsl="" xmlns:saxon="">
	<xsl:output omit-xml-declaration="yes" method="text" />
	<xsl:template match="*">
		<xsl:for-each select="*">
Elem <xsl:value-of select="name()" />, line number <xsl:value-of select="saxon:line-number()" />
$xsl = new XSLTProcessor();
echo $xsl->transformToXML(DOMDocument::loadXML($xmlStr));

Expected result:
Elem node1, line number 2
Elem node2, line number 3

Actual result:
Elem node1, line number 0
Elem node2, line number 0

It doesn't work; it's not fixed in latest, as of this time.

Christian, check it out please. (I can reproduce too)

If my debugging so far might be of any help:

Tracking down the implementation in libexslt,
in command line this requires(required) -l.

It used to work like this in xsltproc, but now it's implemented by default:
doing xmlLineNumbersDefault(1);

This is trackable right down to libxml2, in parserInternals.c,  that sets ctxt->linenumbers = xmlLineNumbersDefaultValue and the actual value being set in SAX2.c: if (ctxt->linenumbers) { ... ret->line = (short) ctxt->input->line; ... }

Given my limited C skills, this is all I could find out. I guess it might actually be an issue in the dom extension.

Fixed with a quick hack:
Added in ext/dom/document.c under 
static xmlDocPtr dom_document_parser(), line 1515

+	ctxt->linenumbers = 1;
	ctxt->recovery = recover;

So I'll move this to DOM, and wait for some sort of a writable DomDocument::$maintainLineNumbers that's properly coded.
