Serhiy, here is a patch that might be helpful. It detects global-and-parameter errors sooner (when possible). This will cause the following:

>>> if 1:
...     def error(a):
...         global a
...     def error2():
...         b = 1
...         global b
  File "<stdin>", line 3
SyntaxError: name 'a' is parameter and global

However, in more complex (nested) cases, the global-after-assign will still be detected sooner:

>>> def error(a):
...     def inner():
...         global a
...     def inner2():
...         b = 1
...         global b
  File "<stdin>", line 6
SyntaxError: name 'b' is assigned to before global declaration

Maybe there is a way to delay the detection of this error until second pass in symtable.c, but don't see now how to do this.
