Order of structure of symbols #246

When selecting the group of symbols I get a different sort order of the groups each time I restart IPE.



The order of symbols within the group appears always in the same way, however.

This issue is related with #237 and version 7.2.12 of IPE (Linux 64bit Ubuntu 16.04 version)

Indeed, the Lua map is a hash table and is not deterministic.

In any case, one should probably sort the group names alphabetically. I'll fix it in the next release. You can do it yourself by inserting the table.sort call in the function select_symbol in symbols.lua, like this:

  local groups = {}
  for g,sbg in pairs(symbolsByGroup) do
    groups[#groups+1] = g
  local d = ipeui.Dialog(model.ui:win(), "Use symbol")
  groups.action = function (d)
