Bug Description

Binary package hint: exuberant-ctags

This bug has already been reported and fixed in exuberant-ctags SVN #632: http://sourceforge.net/tracker/index.php?func=detail&aid=1856363&group_id=6556&atid=106556

It's a tiny 2 line fix which saves a lot of annoyance for python/ctags users.

Thanks for your diff and your patch.

Could you please file a debian bug for this as well? Its likely that the debian maintainer will happily take the patch and then we can just sync it.

Good point, Michael.
I've just forwarded it to Debian, too.
