 > I may be wrong about this but it was my understanding that we could not
 have a tag and a category with the same name. So I don't see why it should
 matter that the permalink base is identical.

 No such Limitation exists AFAIK.

 If you set them both to the same base, then Tags will take priority, and
 it will cause 404's on the Category link(As no such tag exists as the
 category link suggests).

 > In addition, trying to access a category that is a child of a parent
 category results is also broken.
 Must be related to the collisions.

 So they cant currently be listed under the same base, If you set the tags
 base to /tag/ and you set the category base to /tags/ it should work as
 you want.
