Why is the F enharmonic note not a double flat since the key is f#?

Good job, Dave. Just a couple of clarifications: simple vs compound time signatures have nothing to do with the bottom number in any given time signature. For example, 6/4 is a compound (duple) time signature. You seem to suggest that if 4 is at the bottom (i.e. we're counting in crotchets) then it must be a simple t/s. Secondly, you say the cello could play the given extract. The problem with that statement is that, if it were intended for the cello, Mahler would have used the bass or (more likely) the tenor 'C' clef. As far as I'm aware, the cello never uses the treble 'G' clef. Similarly, as I'm sure you know, the viola mainly uses the alto 'C' clef, except when it goes so high in its range that the treble 'G' clef becomes more practical to use. The answer can really only be the violin, therefore.
