I've attempted to fix this and other underlying problems by suitable
changes in etags.c in commit 9c66c5a.  The feature whereby etags
qualifies class members by their class names in TAGS is now optional,
off by default, which creates tag names that are more accurate, and
xref should now work much better with C-like object-oriented
languages.

Please give it a try, including in real-life use cases.  I'm not yet
closing the bug on account of possible complications.

Thanks.
