I thought that's how all variables work. The compiler won't recognize it
until it sees it the first time. That means that if it isn't declared
until a handler runs, then it will be empty until that time. If you
declare the global at the top of the script instead of just inside a
handler, the compiler may see it sooner -- but I don't think you will
get a value until a handler puts one in there.
Local variables at the top of scripts should act the same way, I'd think.
