It does the right thing if t_s_symb is declared as text instead of
varchar.  When it's varchar, even setting enable_sort off won't make
it pick the right plan, which suggests that it fails to recognize that
the index can match the query's ORDER BY.  I'm guessing I overlooked
a binary-compatibility case when I rejiggered the handling of PathKeys
in connection with the NULLS FIRST/LAST stuff.  No time to look deeper
right now.
