Say you have a struct that looks like this:

type A struct {}

type B struct {

If you tried to GoToDef on the embedded struct *A inside B, then the GoToDef does not work. But if you remove the *, then GoToDef works properly by moving the cursor to the A declaration

Although Marwan did mention he might decide to look at himself, not sure if he still means to or not?
I believe this is probably related to the special handling for embedded fields here
