bug#15139: 24.3; Error in section 11.9.3 of the Elisp Reference Manual

From: Sian Mountbatten
Subject: bug#15139: 24.3; Error in section 11.9.3 of the Elisp Reference Manual
Date: Tue, 20 Aug 2013 09:54:58 +0100

In section 11.9.3 Lexical Binding of the Elisp Reference Manual, the
following forms are given:

(defvar my-ticker nil)  ; comment

(let ((x 0))
     (setq my-ticker (lambda ()
                       (setq x (1+ x)))))

(funcall my-ticker)

The manual says that the 3rd form (funcall...) yields `1'. When these
forms are evaluated using C-xC-e, the 3rd form enters the debugger with
the error `void variable x'.
