[xsl] Trying to find following sibling that ends in punctuation

Using XSLT 2, XPath 2, and Saxon8

I'm trying to get the count(of preceding::*) of a following sibling node that ends with some sort of punctuation, and throw this value into a variable.

I've created a recurisive template

<xsl:template name="ct_PositionOfNodeThatEndsWithPunct">

<!-- set a default value for p_Node -->
<xsl:param name="p_Node" select="following-sibling::*[self::P][1]" />

<!-- test what the element ends with --> <xsl:variable name="l_EndsWith" select="f:f_StringEndsWith($p_Node)" />

<xsl:when test="$l_EndsWith = 'noPunct'">
<xsl:call-template name="ct_PositionOfNodeThatEndsWithPunct">
<xsl:with-param name="p_Node" select="following-sibling::*[self::P][1]" />
<xsl:otherwise><xsl:value-of select="count(preceding::*) + 1" /></xsl:otherwise>


Now I was hoping that because called templates are context sensitive I can keep on just doing "select="following-sibling::*[self::P][1]" as I've done to give p_Node a new value to iterate through. I keep on getting out of memory error. Memory is not an issue as from my past experiences when I get this error when I introduce a recursive template usually means I've given the recursion no way out. But I can't see why this is happening.

Any insight will be greatly appreciated.
