Thanks for looking at my message. So, here's what I came up with by following the instructions on the Feedback page you suggested.
1. Emacs version: GNU Emacs 23.1.1 (i386-mingw-nt5.1.2600) of 2009-07-29 on SOFT-MJASON
2. Org version (it came with my Emacs install, I didn't do a separate installation of the mode):
Org-mode version 6.21b
3. (Even though I'm writing to this email list, I was curious to try the command M-x org-submit-bug-report. That command is not defined in my Emacs.)
4. Here are the org-related commands in my init file. I found out how to set up my agenda files there instead of relying on the command that I'm demonstrating now.
;; Org mode
(add-to-list 'auto-mode-alist '("\\.org$" . org-mode))
(define-key global-map "\C-cl" 'org-store-link)
(define-key global-map "\C-ca" 'org-agenda)
(setq org-log-done t)
(setq org-todo-keywords '("TODO" "WAITING" "DONE"))
(setq org-agenda-include-diary t)
(setq org-agenda-include-all-todo t)
(setq org-agenda-files (file-expand-wildcards "J:/MyDocuments/GTD/org/*.org"))
4. Creating a backtrace. The command C-u M-x org-reload RET does not exist on my Emacs.
5. I turned on the option to enter the debugger.
6. I visited a new file called sample.org. I didn't put it in the directory specified for agenda files in my init file (listed above). I wanted to add it interactively for this demo.
7. I saved that file.
8. I selected from the menu: Org --> File List for Agenda --> Add/Move Current File to Front of List
9. Here is the output from the *Backtrace* buffer.
Debugger entered--Lisp error: (scan-error "Unbalanced parentheses" 17301 29246)
customize-save-variable(org-agenda-files ("j:/MyDocuments/GTD/sample.org" "j:/MyDocuments/GTD/org/GTDSteelWig.org" "j:/MyDocuments/GTD/org/SteelWigSomeday.org"))
org-store-new-agenda-file-list(("j:/MyDocuments/GTD/sample.org" "j:/MyDocuments/GTD/org/GTDSteelWig.org" "j:/MyDocuments/GTD/org/SteelWigSomeday.org"))
call-interactively(org-agenda-file-to-front nil nil)
I don't know Lisp, but I can count parentheses (or use Emacs to tell me what they match up with by backspacing over a right one and filling it back in again.) I don't see unbalanced parentheses in that output. I did try stepping through the code in the debugger once as an experiment. It went on and on and I finally held down the step key and let it do what seemed like hundreds of steps. It never errored out. I finally used whatever command it is that steps out. Guess what? That time, it added the file to the agenda file list.
I'm trying to be complete about what I did, although I'm just experimenting. Did any of that clarify anything?
Thanks for your help.
