I run emacs cvs head and the org-mode that is bundled with it. Visual-line-mode is turned on.

The display part of visual-line-mode (breaking long lines into paragraphs visually) works as expected, but C-a (org-beginning-of- line) jumps to the start of the paragraph (i.e. start of the "physical" line). It would be nice if C-a jumped to the beginning of the screen line.

Cheers, and thanks for an excellent tool for writing!

You can get back the emacs 23 way of doing things with

(add-hook 'org-mode-hook
  (lambda ()
    (define-key org-mode-map "\C-a" 'move-beginning-of-line)
    (define-key org-mode-map "\C-a" 'move-end-of-line)))

I personally don't like visual line mode at all, because much
of what I am doing is line-based stuff (source code, for example,
or headlines in Org), and I want these commands to got to
syntactic positions, not visual positions that depend on the
width of my window.
