Actually,  Global`x does work.  I thought I had cleared the kernel 
adequately, but apparently not.  So, this is a workaround.  It appears that 
Get generates a temporary global context for processing input, independent 
of the current context. I can live with this, I guess.  Sorry if I caused 
anybody any unnecessary work.
