So why not make a wrapper on the symbol lookup function

Search the main list if that fails to find try the next list of syms.

After you under 100 inserts resort your additional list. And start a new list

I can imagine a lot of ways to optimize the current code, but the main point was that GDB seems to be stuck in a path of the code that is not really intended to be used other than when GDB is "confused", so the main question is why that happens.
