Patch to fix the bug

Description of problem:

When a script calls gROOT->Macro to read another script and that script defines a global variable, this variable is only accessible in the same scope of the calling script, not lower scopes (e.g. inside a loop).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

root-6.08

How reproducible:

always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Using a script test.C which looks like:

{
   gROOT->Macro("setcolours.C");
   
     { cout << setgreen << "OK" << setblack << endl; }
}

and a macro setcolours.C which looks like:

{
   const char setgreen[] = "\033[32m";
   const char setblack[] = "\033[39;49m";
}

2. root -q test.C

Actual results:

The setgreen and setblack variables, which are defined via gROOT->Macro("setcolours.C") should be visible, but they are not. Removing the curly brackets around the cout line makes the script work, but, of course, you still can't use these variables in a loop.

This is a regression compared to root-6.06 and definitely a bug.

Expected results:

It should just write "OK" in green.

Additional info:

I have reported this upstream

https://sft.its.cern.ch/jira/browse/ROOT-8773

and Axel Naumann has confirmed and fixed the bug in the git tree. I've attached a patch based on his fix. The only change is the path of the TClingCallbacks.cxx, which was changed between root-6.08 and the current git commit.

The problem seems to be in all versions of root-6.08. Fedora 25/26, RHEL 7.3, CentOS 7 etc.
