I looked at your patch, and to be honest, I would have solved this issue 
by replacing
    local a=foo
    local a
instead of just removing the local declaration. Any problem with me 
reverting your patch and doing as described above? I just think it is 
the cleaner approach.


PS: No offence meant though.
