bug#2544: 23.0.60; Could etags please try find a local tag first?

Please write in English if possible, because the Emacs maintainers
usually do not have translators to read other languages for them.

Your bug report will be posted to the address@hidden mailing list.

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

Would it make sense, in general, for etags to first try to find a tag
inside the current buffer? I am working in legacy code that has the
same name for certain help functions in many files. I would like etags
to first try find the tag inside the current buffer.

Please consider the following files:

#include <stdio.h>

static void help_func (void)
  printf ("ad");

void a_func (void)
 help_func ();
 printf ("a\n");

void a_func (void);

#include <stdio.h>
#include "a.h"

static void help_func (void);

int main (void)
  help_func ();
  a_func ();

 return 0;

static void help_func (void)
  printf ("kalle\n");

c:\src\example>C:\download\emacs-cvs\bin\etags a.c a.h b.c

Then go to the line " help_func ();" in b.c and try find-tag. You will
be taken to the function defined in a.c. I know about "C-u M-.", but
that is not a very big help if there is a big number of files with
different help_funcs.

Best Regards

If Emacs crashed, and you have the Emacs process in the gdb debugger,
please include the output from the following gdb commands:
    `bt full' and `xbacktrace'.
If you would like to further debug the crash, please read the file
c:/download/emacs-cvs/etc/DEBUG for instructions.
