Bug with simple name lookup inside extends clause?

The following snippet compiles with javac7, but not javac8-b128.

Shouldn't the type parameter T be shadowing the inner class Test.T?

class Test {
  class T<E> {}
  abstract class One<E> {
    abstract E foo();
  abstract class Two<T> extends One<T> {
    abstract T foo();

error: foo() in Test.Two cannot override foo() in Test.One
    abstract T foo();
  return type T is not compatible with Test.T
  where T,E are type-variables:
    T extends Object declared in class Test.Two
    E extends Object declared in class Test.One
