Thanks, that does fix the bug.

There is another inconvenience, one you may have noticed also -- upon visiting 
the TAGS file emacs complains about its size and requires confirmation before
continuing.  This is a bit of a nuisance for someone who mostly uses TAGS with
big programs such as the Linux kernel.  My scan of 
"customization buffer for group Etags" just now did not turn up a way to 
disable it.
Is there a way?
