Sorry, I missed to ask this in the previous version.

If there is not a particular reason,
may I ask you to use 'int' instead of 'size_t' here?

SYMBOL_HASH_SIZE (= 1024) is small enough, and
it will keep consistency with
the write_dump() function in this file.

If it is tedious to send a new version,
may I fix-up 'size_t' -> 'int' ?

Thanks.
