It is. There are two code scanners at play: one for finding symbols quickly, 
using the old C++ parser, and one for highlighting the code in the files 
you've got open, using clang. This is being fixed because of the exact problem 
you're seeing: the symbol is parsed but F2 goes nowhere.

But it's not easy because the clang-based parser is MUCH slower, making big 
projects painful to open.
