Field with the same name as a type results in "unresolvable field type" #569

protobuf.js version: v6.2.1

A field in a message with the same name as a type should be allowed (it works in Google's protocol buffer compiler and also in protobufjs versions 5 and earlier).

syntax = "proto3";

message A {
  string whatever = 1;

message B {
  A A = 1;

Compile with:

pbjs --target static *.proto

Results in:

                    throw err;

Error: unresolvable field type: A

(Note --target json works, but if you use the subsequent .json file to generate a static module it fails with the same error. I haven't tried importing the .json file directly though).
