memgen: mexecute fails in viewlogic, pc crashes


When using mexecute in viewlogic and memgen, be sure to NOT label the
symbol the same name as an existing library symbol (ie, if creating
a 16x1 ram, do NOT call it 'ram16x1', since there is already an existing
macro with the name 'ram16x1'). This will cause mexecute to fail
(sometimes it reboots the PC). mexecute must open a symbol window with
that name in order to create the symbol. However, if a symbol already
exist with that name, it ends up calling the existing symbol and tries
to write additional information to it. Since the libraries are write
protected, it will not work.
