Hi Dave,
Thanks for the report.
It seems that you have emacs' ctags earlier in your path than
either the one from the "ctags" package or the Exuberant one,
and that its output format is incompatible.

I've hit that problem too, over the years, and have learned
not to install emacs' ctags at all, since it causes this problem
and provides no benefit I've seen.

Now that you've hit the problem, too, I working around --
or even fixing -- it is more likely to get priority.

Patches welcome,
