Hi Ross,

In my case the error was a typo in a latex command (\etxt instead of \text). Playing with it I noticed that the same typo sometimes allowed Goto to locate the error more or less precisely, other times caused Goto to do nothing, and yet other times made it go to the root file, not to the file with the error. This is a project with several \include and \input files, so it could be a combination of factors. I could not come up with a minimal example to demonstrate.
