Well. The PR is about DR 2211 which, in simple terms, says that lambda
and captures cannot have the same name. See

That's stricter than -Wshadow, but otherwise equally strict as the
other error cases already handled
in check_local_shadow. So I'll make this error case more consistent
with the others. We already
handle redeclaration errors slightly differently from shadowing
warnings in that function.
