In fact, I had answered to you, but received no reply.  I append the
text of my previous mail at the end of this mail.

All well until here.

What enumeration?  Why are the colours important?

What I see is that the buffer shows the lisp.h file, and the cursor is
at the line of the definition of "enum Lisp_Type", which is what I

>So this is a bug.

I cannot reproduce it.  After the second step of you description, what
path do you enter?  What do you see exactly after that?  Does Emacs open
the lisp.h file?

No.  It should jump to find-tag first, then to the other ones.  In fact,
I cannot reproduce the behaviour you describe.

Which etags did you use?  I can see the tag whith either new or old

In this particular case this works, but don't do that in general,
because xargs may make two calls to etags as the consequence of too many
arguments, and in this case you would get a second TAGS overwriting the
first one without any warnings.  For Emacs, just do `make tags'.
