Bug Description

Many operations do not update the symbols for the 'Current Document' when that is selected. The problems include:

 * Creating a new symbol (Object > Symbol > Group to Symbol)
 * Removing a symbol (Object > Symbol > Symbol to Group)
 * Cleaning Definitions (File > Clean up the document)
 * Importing a document with symbols (File > Import)

Selecting a different symbols collection and then reverting back to the 'Current Document' refreshes the icon view correctly. So hooking in some more signals should do the trick.

• Object->Group to Symbol
This converts a selected group to a <symbol> element. (…) The new symbol can be selected in the Symbol dialog in the Current Document Symbol set. (You may need to unselect and then reselect the Current Document set to get the symbol to show.)

• Symbol to Group/Group to Symbol should trigger an update to the symbols shown in the Symbol dialog when symbol set Current Document is selected.
• Editing a symbol should result in updating the image in the Symbol's dialog.
