Sorry, my bad, I'm wrong. (I just tested this.) I could swear it was that
way, but it's 0:25 right now, after a night with about 2 hours decent sleep,
so ignore my delusions :)

No, it's not doing that. It's adding the symbol name to the symtab, with
DEF_DOUBLESTAR as one of its flags. Not sure what the flag does, but I could
guess. (But see the above mentioned delusions as to why I'm not doing that
out loud anymore :-) The 'if' in front of it adds the symbol to the symtab
with DEF_STAR as a flag, in the case of 'STAR' (rather than DOUBLESTAR).
Really. go check :)
