Indeed we have two bugs: we gather the local vars from the wrong buffer,
and we don't ignore invalid-read-syntax errors (which can happen in
various other legitimate cases).
The second bug is trivial to fix, the first is a bit more delicate
because the buffer-switching is done by completion-table-dynamic and I'm
pretty sure it's done for a good reason (i.e. while it's undesirable
here, it's desirable in some other case(s)), so we'll first have to
figure out which are those other cases and how to fix this case
without breaking those others.
