Please try to only set lexical-binding via file-local variables.
This should be 100% backward compatible (i.e. only affect the files
where you've set that variable), so any new error like the above
is not normal. There are a few rare backward incompatibilities, but
they are fairly rare (e.g. the `byte-compile' property works a bit
differently, and there are new representations for functions, so if the
code checks (eq (car foo) 'lambda) instead of using `functionp' it might
bump into problems).
