Sometimes under undetermined conditions eval() does not see the local scope function variables.

$returnTo = $_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'];
eval('$this->content = "' . $this->application->getTemplate('/admin/user/login/login') . '";');

Assuming that I have $returnTo variable inside a '/admin/user/login/login', I see the "Notice: undefined variable $returnTo", while evaling it.

But, If I create a dummy function moo() and eval somthing there the notice is gone.

See whole listing for details.
