Thanks for the patch, but I decided to fix it by renaming the file instead.

I've started getting errors like this when compiling the gui-release branch:

src/main-window.cc:275:9: error: use of undeclared identifier 'valid_identifier'
  if (! valid_identifier (function_name.toStdString ()))

The cause is the presence of two files named "utils.h":


This can be rectified temporarily by replacing

#include "utils.h"


#include "corefcn/utils.h"

but I suspect that a proper solution involves renaming the newly added Utils.h file.
