From @zoffixznet

If you accidentally use an `int` variable as a Callable, you get a
helpful error​:

  <Zoffix> m​: my int $i; $i()
  <camelia> rakudo-moar 1f29cb​: OUTPUT«No such method 'CALL-ME' for
invocant of type 'Int'␤ in block <unit> at <tmp> line 1␤␤»

However, that's not the case if the variable is a parameter​:

  <Zoffix> m​: sub (int $i) { $i() }
  <camelia> rakudo-moar 1f29cb​: OUTPUT«===SORRY!===␤callee
expression must be an object␤»

Most heinous issue is the line number/file of the issue is missing
from the error message.

Most heinous issue is the line number/file of the issue is missing
from the error message.

Now the second gives the same error as the first. Test added in S32-exceptions/misc.t.
