Target::ClearModules clears the m_section_load_histroy which maintains the section list of the target. the following symbol parsing phase needs section list of the executable. Empty section list will leads to Misinterpreting various symbol data including Function Starts. 

How are you setting up your symbols prior to setting the target executable? Or is the dynamic loader plug-in doing this? Either way the target's main executable should be set, then the sections should be setup.

How are you getting this to happen?

This isn't the right way to do things. Let me know how you are getting Target::SetExecutableModule() to be called and I might be able to tell you more.
