I don't use properties, but doesn't



I added the following file to my agenda list:

| * head
|   :PROP:     foo
|   :END:
| * tail
|   :PROP:   bar
|   :END:

and I did

    C-c a m PROP="" <RET>

Since none of my normal headlines has the PROP property, I got a buffer
with all the headlines except the above two.


  C-c a m PROP<>"" <RET>

found only those two.
