This bug report will be sent to the Free Software Foundation,
not to your local site managers!
Please write in English, because the Emacs maintainers do not have
translators to read other languages for them.

Your bug report will be posted to the address@hidden mailing list,
and to the gnu.emacs.bug news group.

In GNU Emacs 21.1.1 (hppa2.0-hp-hpux10.20, OSF/Motif Version 1.2.6)
 of 2001-12-05 on nbghs10
configured using `configure  --with-gcc

Please describe exactly what actions triggered the bug
and the precise symptoms of the bug:

1. start emacs with options -q --no-site-file
2. M-x todo-insert-item "entry1"
   specify a category e.g. "cat1"
3. type s and q to save and quit
4. M-x todo-show
   shows the item in category "Todo" instead of category "cat1"
   and now entering "+" i.e. todo-forward-category results in error:
   
   todo-category-select: Search failed: "^\\*/\\* --- cat1$"

the todo-do file contains:

-*- mode: todo; todo-categories: ("Todo" "cat1" "Todo" "Todo"); -*-
*/* --- Todo
*/* 2001-12-07 15:08 kzeitler: entry1
--- End
*/* ---------------------------------------------------------------------------

i.e. the new category "cat1" is entered in the list of categories but the
item is entered in the block of "Todo" items and there's no block
for "cat1" items.

Besides the variable todo-categories in the mode header
looks a bit odd too: ("Todo" "cat1" "Todo" "Todo")
