Current behavior:
In the very simple attached example an existing variable-name is used as the target in the except-part of a try-statement. The existing variable is deleted if an exception is throw.

Excepted behavior:
The only reasonable behaviors are keeping the original variable or keeping the exception. The current behavior is very unintuitive.
