This is because describe-symbol isn't returning (buffer-string) like
describe-{function, variable} are.

I've attached a patch fixing this problem.

Additionally, I have attached another patch that re-orders the placement
of variables/faces in describe-symbol, to put more emphasis on the
variable entry rather than the face.
