No. I guessed that the compiler was just being picky.
The misleading error message is:
zzz.cbl: 22: error: size of 'BAR' larger than size of 'FOO'
when it is not!

Note that deleting UID1 (the definition after BAR-DEF-1)
gets rid of the error about different sizes: so it is not
as simple as deleting the BAR-DEF-1 line.
It would be useful to include the sizes on the second error:
zzz.cbl: 22: error: size of 'BAR' (nnn) larger than 'FOO' (mmm)
Then we would also know what it *thinks* the size of BAR is!
