I have not tried to find a reproducer, if there is any.
But I find it messy a bit, You adjust AUX_SYMENTS for that initial zero
symbol but you do not adjust AUX_FIRST_GLOBAL for that initial zero symbol.
Therefore AUX_SYMENTS and AUX_FIRST_GLOBAL numbering is off-by-one.
I would prefer to not modify the member variable AUX_SYMENTS and only adjust
it if needed / when read, as you already do with AUX_FIRST_GLOBAL.
TBH FYI / no request here: I no not find this first_global + syments too clear
now when combining multiple symbol tables, which is why I have refactored it in:
