Do you know if there is a way to switch off the feature where the symbols window displays the symbols for the project that a focused source file is assumed to belong to?
Nope. I don't use it, ever. I've never used it in Visual Studio either where it works better.

Attached is a smallish project that shows the problem.

 - Open project and let parser complete.
 
 - Open main.cpp in editor window

 - Open symbols window - no symbols visible

 - Open CD2A.h - symbols appear

 - Alternate focus between source file editor windows - symbols vanish and reappear.

( Note: I have done considerable violence to this project to reduce its size and complexity.  It will still compile but it will not link and the code does not make a great deal of sense.  You will need a recent release of the boost libraries )

Yep, I don't use it. I use alt-g, ctrl-f, ctrl-shift-f (set to thread search) and ctrl-./ctrl-shift-.
And when something is more complex I look at the images generated for class hierarchies by doxygen.

If you do not use the symbol browser, then why am I discussing problems with the symbol browser with you!

Likely because you want to get the problem fixed.

Note: If you do not wish to have the problem fixed; I have no idea why you are posting.

I certainly want to have the problem fixed.  It is making codeblocks almost useless to me. 

Do you, or someone who does actually use the symbol browser for large complex multiple project workspaces, have any suggestions which would be helpful?

Because I'm the only one posting in the topic.

I've tried your project and I can't make it break.
What is selected in the View choice control?
Do you have the one parser per workspace enabled?

The "one parser per workspace" option looks interesting.

It was a little hard to find - Settings | Editor | Code completion | C/C++ Parser

but once found and selected, I can see my symbols again!
