It did, so that's not the problem.

I don't understand this new prompt, it says:

  In directory: /patch/to/emacs/trunk/src/

What does it ask about?  (I just pressed RET, since the directory
sounds correct.)

I tried both, and got the same results.  So this is not the reason;
there's something else at work here.

So why didn't it do that?  Why did I get "no known references"?

[Time passes] Ah, I see the reason: Some code that uses ID Utils
expects the file names in the ID database to be absolute.  So if I
create the ID database like this:

   mkid -o ID /path/to/emacs/src

then the feature starts working.

I think it should support relative names as well, by expanding them
relative to the directory in which the ID database was found.  And in
any case, claiming it found no references instead of saying something
about finding no files whose names were returned by ID Utils is a less
than useful error message, IMO.

Now to the Grep alternative: if I rename the ID database, I get an
error message:

  Searching for program: No such file or directory, sh

(This is on MS-Windows.)  The patch for that is below.

But that doesn't end the saga, because after fixing this, I get "No
known references for: set_cursor_from_row" again, when there's no ID
database.  The reason is that the find/grep command uses the wrong
quoting style; the patch below fixes that as well.

And the saga is not yet over, but now I need help.  The method
semantic-symref-parse-tool-output-one-line returns nil, but I cannot
seem to figure out why.  The buffer which contains Grep hits look fine
to me (except that it includes SGR escape sequences, due to
"--color=always" switch to Grep -- why is that a good idea?), but
where's the code of this method?  I couldn't step into it with Edebug,
for some reason.


Here's that patch I promised.  I will push it if no one objects.
