Here's the code sample for posterity sake in case those links ever go dead. Expected output is "I am null", but null is returned. clos = function( func ) { func(); }; clos( function(){ clos( function(){ writeDump( foo ?: "I am null" ); } ); } );

This really messes with the TestBox BDD syntax since it uses nested closures just like the example code does. I know it looks a little weird, but it really is a real-world use case.

The fix for this bug is available as part of the early-access build for ColdFusion 2016 Update 2.
