No.  It should jump to find-tag first, then to the other ones.  In fact,
I cannot reproduce the behaviour you describe.

Which etags did you use?  I can see the tag whith either new or old

In this particular case this works, but don't do that in general,
because xargs may make two calls to etags as the consequence of too many
arguments, and in this case you would get a second TAGS overwriting the
first one without any warnings.  For Emacs, just do `make tags'.
