You must be confusing that with something else, perhaps weak symbols.
Local symbols never appeared in the dynamic symbol table, never did.
readelf -s <somebinaryordso>
and compare the .dynsym and the .symtab sections. The latter, if
present, contains all the symbols, while the former only contains the
non-local symbols (the only local entries are the SECTION "symbols" but
this is just a GNU ld thing). The .symtab table is not loaded at
runtime (look at the program header) so there is no way it can be looked at.
I cannot answer your question about the mysterious problems since I
never saw them nor analyzed them. But adding HIDDEN to a local symbol
cannot change anything after the linker finished its work.
