Here, there is no procedure in the call chain that has source
annotations corresponding to symbol1.scm.  Though, it does seem to me
that the load-compiled/vm line is unnecessary; instead we should load up
the .go into a thunk, and run that thunk without recursing through the
load-compiled/vm primitive.

In any case it seems that symbol1.scm.go tail-calls symbol->string, so
we are left without source info.  Bummer.  We could improve this by
keeping a ring buffer of previous frames, like JRM suggests in
