I use Emacs source tree as example.  Here is the way I create TAGS file.

$ etags src/*.[hc]

And then run M-x list-tags RET src/buffer.c RET to show buffer *Tags List*.
The first tag in it is current_buffer.  But when I press RET on it,
an error message shows up.  It's like

etags-goto-tag-location: Rerun etags: `^current_buffer' not found
in /home/liang/src/emacs/trunk/src/buffer.c

That's because etags-goto-tag-location wants implicit tag which starts from
 the beginning of the line, but current_buffer is an explicit tag.

To fix it, implicit tag must be used as link, but we can choose either
explicit tag or implicit tag to show in *Tags List* buffer.

Hmm... looks like this was broken at least since Emacs-22.
Installed, thanks,
