Unhelpful ambiguous component error

Reported by Christopher Stawarz | January 27th, 2011 @ 04:55 PM

The attached experiment has a variable and a timer that are both named "ignore_timer". When you try to load the experiment, the parser correctly raises an "ambiguously referenced component" error. However, the error message gives no indication as to which components are ambiguous:

ERROR: An attempt was made to access an ambiguously referenced component.  Please ensure that all object tag names are unique: ()

In order to help the user fix the problem, the error message should indicate which components are at fault. (I believe the core is already trying to do this, but for some reason it's not working.)
