The exception appears to be intentional, though I do not know what a 'qualified' exec would be. But since the tuple form is intended to mimic 3.x exec, and since a reduced version of your example

c = '''
def g():
    def f():
        if True:
            exec("", {}, {})
compile(c, "<code>", "exec")

runs fine in 3.4, I agree that this appears to be a 2.7 compiler bug.
