etags.el doesn't find nested functions in perl

This bug report will be sent to the Free Software Foundation,
not to your local site managers!
Please write in English, because the Emacs maintainers do not have
translators to read other languages for them.

Your bug report will be posted to the address@hidden mailing list,
and to the gnu.emacs.bug news group.

In GNU Emacs 21.3.1 (sparc-sun-solaris2.8, X toolkit)
 of 2004-08-31 on iceage
configured using `configure  --prefix=/users/brucer/share 
--exec-prefix=/users/brucer/sparc-sun-solaris2.8'
Important settings:
  value of $LC_ALL: nil
  value of $LC_COLLATE: nil
  value of $LC_CTYPE: nil
  value of $LC_MESSAGES: nil
  value of $LC_MONETARY: nil
  value of $LC_NUMERIC: nil
  value of $LC_TIME: nil
  value of $LANG: nil
  locale-coding-system: nil
  default-enable-multibyte-characters: t

Please describe exactly what actions triggered the bug
and the precise symptoms of the bug:

reading *BAD* perl w/ sub's in BEGIN blocks. They are indented by cperl 
indent-region.
etags (the executable) finds them, puts them in TAGS file. find-tag does not 
find them.

etags.el prepends a '^' to the regex for the 'pat'. defeated this. then it 
works.

BTW, even after modifying etags.el, it doesn't take precedence over etags.elc. I
thought this used to be the case. renamed etags.elc to etags.elc.OFF to fix.

thanks,
Bruce
