This bug report will be sent to the Free Software Foundation,
not to your local site managers!
Please write in English if possible, because the Emacs maintainers
usually do not have translators to read other languages for them.

Your bug report will be posted to the address@hidden mailing list.

Please describe exactly what actions triggered the bug
and the precise symptoms of the bug:

Once Emacs has visited a tags file, it insists on it always being
present, even if I happen to, e.g., remove the entire directory.

A better approach would be to turn the error message into a prompt
"File foo no longer exists!  Ignore? (y or n)" and remove that tags
file from the list of tags file it uses.

I looked briefly at etags.el but wasn't able to come up with a good
solution, so I'm only reporting it.

Debugger entered--Lisp error: (error "File /home/jas/src/shishi/crypto/TAGS no 
longer exists!")
  signal(error ("File /home/jas/src/shishi/crypto/TAGS no longer exists!"))
  error("File %s no longer exists!" "/home/jas/src/shishi/crypto/TAGS")
  revert-buffer(t t)
  tags-table-including("/home/jas/src/shishi/lib/tkts.c" t)
  find-tag-noselect("SHISHI_TKTSHINTFLAGS_ACCEPT_EXPIRED" nil nil)
