In fact the problem here was that the metatable was being (unexpectedly)
replaced by other code elsewhere in the app, lacking a _newindex, hence the
global was being set. So it was my (silly) problem.
Sorry to waste your time on this one!

with his code. He never provided his code, so it is hard to say what's
wrong. I think his __newindex event handler must somehow be setting XYZ in
the globals table.
