+Summary: nested scope variable declaration
+The following program should not compile, but it does with mcs on either
+class T {
+        static void Main() {
+                for (int i = 0; i < 2; ++i) {
+                        int a = i;
+                }
+                int a = 5;
+        }
+csc gives the following error:
+inner-decl.cs(6,7): error CS0136: A local variable named 'a' cannot be
+declared in this scope because it would give a different meaning to 'a',
+which is already used in a 'child' scope to denote something else
+inner-decl.cs(6,7): error CS0103: The name 'a' does not exist in the class
+or namespace 'T'
