We have been successful in the very latest prerelease, 2036, with full mapping of simple US stock symbols to the more complex Interactive Brokers stock symbol format. This is also true of when using symbols like this in the past:
GLD-STK-SMART/ARCA-USD

You can now just use GLD. If a symbol requires a primary exchange this is only going to work for symbols that are listed in File >> Find Symbol >> Specific Stocks. We can add other symbols on request.

So you want to always use the simple format for US Stocks when using Interactive Brokers, unless you require market depth data. In which case you need to use a non SMART exchange.
