relates to:

  • SR-284 Strange error caused by let/var at specific place in main file.

Issue Description:

The following:

func f() { g() }

var x = 1
func g() { x = 2 }

fails to compile because

error.swift:1:12: error: use of unresolved identifier 'g'
func f() { g() }

which is unhelpful at best...
