Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 268981
should a small global trump a big global?

it appears large_global_at_small_global is returned, but I suspect the selection
is unstable given:
$ nm -p -S frysk-core/frysk/pkglibdir/funit-symbols| grep -e
small_global_at_large_global -e large_global_at_small_global
080483ca 00000004 T large_global_at_small_global
080483ca 00000003 T small_global_at_large_global
it's choosing the first one.
You are right that it chooses the first one in the symbol table.
I think choosing the smaller one is the better behavior.
