Good point, I will comment out the method.

Charles, somehow the changes you make are not picked up by my project. 
I see that files are updated in the SCM window, but the changes don't 
show up the source code. So far this only happens when the code changes 
are form Charles, I haven't seen it before. I checkedout a complete new 
project, but the problem remains. Anyone else has the same problem, and 
maybe knows how to fix it?

No, each sequence should have it's own symbolset, just like each 
sequence has its own symbolArray.
