end in a CR. I would consider such a file broken, and first thing would
be to strip them all off.
I suppose you can't do this because others don't see the problem and
object to have such a change in version control?
Although the solution would work, I hesitate including this in Vim.
It's a small audience, and when the pattern indeed can't be found it
takes twice as long to fail.
How about this alternative: Filter your tags file to change the patterns
to include an optional CR before the $: \r\=$
