I wasn't quite clear... there's one thing that should be different.

I was thinking like:

is_main_symbol (struct symbol *check_symbol)
  if (symbol_of_main && symbol_of_main == check_symbol)
    return 1;
  else if (strcmp (SYMBOL_NAME (check_symbol), get_main_name ()) == 0)
    return 1;
  return 0;

And then change all callers of get_main_name () to use this.

(Note that this requires being careful if symbol_of_main gets
unloaded and we load a C program afterwards!)

Make sense?  Sound reasonable?
