erlang.el (emacs) problems

I ran into a couple of problems with erlang.el (emacs mode).

Erlang Mode Version 2.5.2
Emacs version 21.4.1

1) Calling erlang-find-tag (M-.) with a module:tag form of argument
   results in an error:
   Symbol's value as variable is void: tags-table-format-hooks

   This is solved for my emacs by replacing the calls to
   tags-table-format-hooks by calls to tags-table-format-functions.

2) With font-lock-maximum-decoration set to 3, hexadecimal
   literals are incorrectly highlighted as variables (e.g. in 16#C5,
   C5 is highlighted as though it were a variable).
