Sorry, IRL is intruding here.

In all TAGS files I only see 1 entry for the tag and the file is shown as
/home/pmahan/... not /home2/pmahan.

But again, when I attempt to xref-find-tag-other-window, it is giving me
two options to choose from and then it bounces back to the original window
and displays the output there instead of just using the new window (or
creating a new window).  This is becoming annoying because it is breaking
finding a tag that exists inside the current source file.

If I override these settings back to the original 'find-tag' and
'find-tag-other-window' it works as expected.
