The following patch fixes this problem (to do this it was convenient
to eliminate the default "Todo" category, so you just have to specify
an initial category; I hope that's acceptable).  In fixing this I also
noticed that the original code for todo-insert-item with a prefix
argument does just the opposite of what the docstring says; I've now
made it comply with the docstring.
