I just tried it with the open sourced cscope, and it works on that line
just fine. It (the cscope) still needs a little work in some areas, but
it seems fairly decent to me.

Try using the open source cscope... this isn't a bug there, and if you
do run into any, you can always email me (or submit to cscope's
sourceforge site) patches to it.

Good luck. :)
