Now this is *really* curious.
I found one of these being triggered by the same variable being declared
global a few lines apart.
Yes, that's wrong--but this is in my main script, in a major routine. It's
been there for at least several months, and probably over a year.
And then a half dozen more similar double declarations that weren't
throwing errors, all in long-established routines.
So this may be more than one bug that gives the same incorrect error
message. Or a bug giving the message, and another circumstance in which
the bug *is* giving that message.
