I'm in the habit of putting  Remove["Global`*"]  as the first expression 
in the first evaluatable cell of my notebooks, so that reevaluations of 
the entire notebook produce a (more or less) clean start.

In earlier versions of Matheamtica, this did not produce an error.  In later 
versions it produces an error on the first evaluation of a freshly 
opened notebook.  The workaround is to use  x; Remove["Global`*"]  
instead.
