Don't be condescending.  
Especially since you are technically wrong <wink>: For it to be a _search_ you 
need to be searching for something.  I was just walking through the entries one 
by one.

What I saw was in file order, but not including every symbol in the file: Every 
class name was there, but not every method name.  The missing methods might 
have shown up further down the sequence, but I did not take the time to M-n 
through every single entry to see if that would happen, since there's 145,827 
entries in the particular TAGS file.
