in your example, does this code
get called multiply? each `gh_new_procedure1_0' call returns a new
`ServerReadSymbols' is already global in the C function namespace and
"ReadSymbols" is already global in the string pool. you are starting
with global data and then calling a function that gives you a new
pointer each time called. probably you will want to emulate libguile
practice of making `ServerReadSymbols' file static and then in the init
procedure (called only once), saving the SCM. then you can pass this
SCM around w/ resorting to `gh_eval_str' (which consults yet another
