            Bug ID: 37317
           Summary: ModuleList::FindGlobalVariables fails with
           Product: lldb
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: PC
                OS: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement

In my Rust work I found that ModuleList::FindGlobalVariables will not
work properly when passed append=false.

The issue comes because SymbolFileDWARF::FindGlobalVariables does:

  // If we aren't appending the results to this list, then clear the list
  if (!append)

So, if there are multiple modules, later ones will erase the results
from earlier ones.

A simple fix would be to change ModuleList::FindGlobalVariables to
do something like:

if (!append) variables.Clear();
    (*pos)->FindGlobalVariables(name, nullptr, true, max_matches,

That is, always pass append=true to the callees.

I would submit a patch for this but I don't know how to write a test case.
So, I thought I'd file this instead.  I'm also going to fix it in my tree.
