Summary 0006720: Using twice the same block argument names and auto accepting temps can put the Debugger in a mess
Description Debugger can get completely lost about temporary variable slots when we use several time the same names for block args
when we auto accept to declare a temporary.

Open a browser, say on Object, and accept following method (see below).
Declare warningMessage as a temporary when you are asked to do so.
Then execute (nil testWeirdDebuggerCase), open a debugger when assertion fails and inspect the temps... OUCH

If you doIt in a workspace, or accept with well declared temps, the bug does not show. What the tricky kind it must be!

Seems like the guilty is Encoder>>#bindAndJuggle:

This one states that:
"Declared temps must precede block temps for decompiler and debugger to work right"

Block temps should have scope > 0, and this method search first such slot.

I suspect that Declared temps SHOULD ALSO precede block args for decompiler and debugger to work right. But block args currently have a scope of -1, so they will precede auto-declared temps.

Can an expert in the old Compiler arcanes confirm what i say?

I guess this was fixed by the closure changes.

Cannot reproduce the error in trunk 4.2.
Fixed by various closure/compiler changes, probably in 4.1.
