Hmm, that seemed to do the trick. Thanks!

But still, that error message is exceedingly unhelpful.  If possible I'd love to track it down and file an enhancement to improve the error message.

You can get that error when using two different symbols with the same local name but different fully qualified names. Since the compiler doesn't use the fully qualified name in the error message it can be very confusing. Although I'm not sure if this was the problem you had.
