I had problems with jumping to symbols with the original post (wrong type argument: integer-or-marker-p).

Found an alternative, http://emacswiki.org/emacs/idomenu.el - which works well enough for me.

Yep, I'm getting the same issue as terranpro. Traceback:

This occurs when I jump to symbols that have been imported rather than defined in the current file.
