New issue 3110: Interaction between exec() and nonlocal

Ronan Lamy:

The following test, which passes on CPython 3.6.9, fails on the last line in PyPy:

def test_exec_nonlocal():
    x = 0
    def set_x(value):
        nonlocal x
        x = value
    assert x == 1
    assert x == 2

The situation is a bit unclear according to the docs, but I think PyPy’s behaviour is incorrect.
