'Tags' vimrc setting getting clobbered by Ruby paths #78

Despite there being a fairly recent commit (0d4ae14) intended to fix this problem, it looks like I'm still running into the problem. It appears that my tags setting in my .vimrc is being clobbered by vim-ruby. I have :set tags+=./tags; in my .vimrc but when I open VIM on a file and type :set tags to see what it thinks the currently set value is, I get only the Ruby paths (which appear to be set from line 98 of the above linked to commit). This results in VIM not being able to see my tags file for my codebase. If I source my .vimrc afterward, then the tags setting has my path plus the Ruby paths. I do not run into this problem when I remove vim-ruby altogether.

I am running pathogen to manage VIM bundles and bring in vim-ruby. I'm also using Exuberant Tags and VIM 7.3.

Looks like when I fixed it to preserve the local 'tags', I stopped preserving the global one. Fix is obvious, though I leave it to you to check that it works. Thanks.
