This is because many index structures in SymbolFileDWARF are generated in parallel.

TEach SymbolFileDWARF should generate its own accelerator tables in a self contained way. No SymbolFileDWARF should be adding references to their accelerator maps that actually refer to DIEs from another SymbolFileDWARF. We might need to look at the indexing function that make sure if they see and DW_FORM_ref_addr attributes, that they don't add any of them to their index. That seems like the bug?
