Hi all,

>From the REPL hackday we had recently:

"Following error message might be confusing, as the symbol might not be a
-> ClassName x = ClassName.create()
|  cannot find symbol
| symbol:   variable ClassName
|  ClassName x = ClassName.create();
|                ^-------^

Kulla team suggested this is a Java compiler (javac) error message and it
should be submitted as a bug report against javac.
