Actually there are two problems in this defcustom:

1. `find-tag-default' doesn't return a regexp.  To fix this problem,
we need two functions returning a regexp: as a non-symbol regexp and
as a symbol regexp.  I propose the following implementations:

  (defun find-tag-default-as-regexp ()
    "Return regexp that matches the default tag at point."
    (let ((tag (funcall (or find-tag-default-function
                            (get major-mode 'find-tag-default-function)
      (if tag (regexp-quote tag))))

  (defun find-tag-default-as-symbol-regexp ()
    "Return regexp that matches the default tag at point as symbol."
    (let ((tag-regexp (find-tag-default-as-regexp)))
      (if (and tag-regexp
               (eq (or find-tag-default-function
                       (get major-mode 'find-tag-default-function)
          (format "\\_<%s\\_>" tag-regexp)

2. The second problem is that `(lambda () (car regexp-history))'
can't be used in defcustom because many commands use history other than

As a possible solution we could add a new special symbol
`default-last-history' to handle it in `read-regexp' that
has access to the actual value of the history variable in its arg
`history' using `(symbol-value (or history 'regexp-history))' below:
