R. David Murray <rdmurray at bitdance.com> added the comment:

Sorry.  It is intended behavior.  The lambda 'each' is bound to the local 'each', and by the time the lambda's execute, the value of 'each' is 'baz'.

I'm going to turn this into a doc bug, because while I'm pretty sure this is documented *somewhere*, I don't see it in the programming FAQ, and it should be there.
