Oh, i just found out that ScriptScope.GetVariable is throwing an exception

ArgumentNullException: "Value cannot be null.
Parameter name: field"
  Microsoft.Scripting.Utils.ContractUtils.RequiresNotNull(Object value,
String paramName)
  Microsoft.Scripting.SymbolTable.StringToId(String field)
  Microsoft.Scripting.Hosting.ScriptScope.GetVariable(String name)
