In ejs@0.8.3

test='this test in base'
console.log(ejs.render('<%= this.test %>'))
console.log(ejs.render('<%= this.test %>',{scope:{test:'in scope'}}))


this test in base
in scope

in ejs@0.8.4, both lines produce this test in base

This appears to be the result of visionmedia#79 which wraps the template code in a function(){...}().

Using option._with:false, gets around this problem

I think this issue would be resolved by changing the template compile to produce


In other words, pass the scope through the new function layer.
