Log Message:
Misleading indent var warn (#25207)

This was caused by the incorrect location reporting for variables. If
the code above is 4-indented, and then location of the name is used,
that name is also 4-indented, code flags as misleading.

As an example:

      for 1..10 do
          writeln("Hello, world!");
      var unrelated = "hi";

Note that unrelated and writeln happen to be aligned, which is
sufficient for the false positive.

Reported by @alvaradoo -- thanks!

The solution is to steal the logic from IncorrectIndentation that avoids
AST nodes that report their locations oddly.
