Found an arbitrary, albeit useful work solution. If I double click on the symbol in the document library (click on the 'kind' column), it brings up the Convert to Symbol dialog. If I do nothing, but select OK, then all of the symbols magically appear. Neato! Better than the work around.
Note however, after closing the file and then reopening it again, I get the same result all over again. Trying the arbitrary solution noted above does set the symbol back to the desired state however.

Can you export the symbol and post a link to it? What type of symbol are
you trying to create?
