This is the root cause for both reports.

Sorrz for the typo of the title, this happened because functions internally are handled as environment variables:

sr #108904: Error in assignement of BASH_SOURCE for static environemnt functions

The assigment of the filename entry for a function, which is
'pinned' as environment extension fails when called from a new
independent script.

This is caused by multiple bugs, I am going to provide further
information including the required fix soon.
For additional information on a related issue refer to item:

sr #108903: Inconsistency of BASH_SOURCE/BASH_LINENO/FUNCNAME with 'pinned' functions

Even though similar, these items are actually idependent.

-> sr #108903: breaks the BASH_SOURCE completely once occur
-> this item: just breaks function calls - trace in the func-body

PS: The attached files from sr #108903 display this issue too
