I tried this patch, and all I can say is WOW!  "b TAB" while debugging
Emacs (6.6K symbols) used to take 15 seconds, now it takes 2; the same
while debugging GDB (10K symbols) used to take 30 seconds, now it
takes 3.

Thanks!  I was always annoyed by this, but never had time to dig into

Yes, please, please, pretty please, approve this!
