sure, this fixes the symptoms, 
bit if noone can think of a reason or situation where nesting
functions would make sense i'd like to have this 'feature' 
it's confusing, unseless IMHO and leaving it possible will
block any chance to implement it the way Pascal or gcc in 
extended mode handle it with the inner function only
visible within the scope of the outer one ...
