I missed that change way back when I created diversified
symbol spaces so that the builtin space at symbol() won't
just grow infinitely over the time, but apparently I did
forget/miss this one at the global search/destroy run
Propably I should have killed the symbol() entirely, and
just use symbol_db() in all instances.
