Sorry if I forgot to mention it in my first post, but I believe this
custom command only works when the agenda is called from within an org
buffer. As far as I understand it, since the tags tree command creates
a sparse tree within an org buffer, it needs a particular org buffer
to work with. 

Someone else please correct me if I'm wrong.

Re: the manual. I only mentioned it because I've found it to be such a
comprehensive and helpful source of information and I like to "spread
the word" about how good it is.
