But this `translate` method doesn't set the field `data`  of the new VarSymbol. Maybe it is because the field `data` is unused in later phase.

I test the uni-catch locally by using this test case. The compiler crashes and the error message is same as multi-catch. But I don't know why the reporter only reproduce it by using multi-catch. My local environment is linux&x86_64.
