IOW, formerly src/TAGS would tell Emacs that all of this was the tag:

   DEFVAR_LISP ("pointer-make-invisible"

Which, of course, is incorrect, and caused a lot of false positives.

Indeed, now it's much better. The only thing missing IMO is to default case-fold-search or tags-case-fold-search to nil. Or add a new etags-xref-find-definitions- variable for that.

As it is now, DEFVAR_LISP gives you two matches, and that not really correct.
