[squeak-dev] Senders "too thorough"

With the recent changes of literal searching, I've found something
If you evaluate the following snippet, there will be some false positives
(e.g. Scanner >> #initialize) on the list.
These methods do not reference the searched literal, but they reference a
class variable (TypeTable), which happens to be an array containing the
SystemNavigation default browseAllCallsOn: #xLitQuote.
The reason why it appears is that CompiledCode >> #hasLiteral: will try
Object >> #hasLiteral: first, which uses #allLiteralsDo:, which descends
into the value of the binding of the TypeTable class variable and finds the symbol.
