I get crashes in org-mode when I do things in a region with invisible

- There is something strange with the display in org-mode an items content
is hidden. You can position point after the three dots ... If you do that
and check (current-column) you get 0.
- In code if you in org-mode do
(while (my-invisible-p (point))
until point is on a visible char and there insert an overlay with an
after-string it crashes.
Please make the "insert an overlay with an
after-string" more precise, e.g. actual Elisp code.
It looks similar to this, I have not tested if propertize is involved:
(setq ovl-str (concat "before"
(propertize "txt" 'face 'highlight-popup)
(overlay-put ovl 'after-string ovl-str)
(overlay-put ovl 'display "")
See also the attached file. The crash happens in tabkey2-overlay-message if
you let it take the path avoided right under the comment:
;; Fix-me: Emacs bug workaround
(if nil ;;(tabkey2-invisible-p (1- (point)))
Also, does it happen with any Org-mode buffer, or is the
It does not seem to be dependent on the buffers content.
Finally, please provide a backtrace.
Sorry, it is compiled with debug info, but there is no backtrace.
You need to run it under a debugger, of course, in order to get
a backtrace. Please read etc/DEBUG for more info about it.
My memory is short. Jason and Eli told me this a while ago. Here is the

I'm sorry, but you presume I'm much more intelligent than I am.
I do not understand what tabkey2.el has to do with it all and how to
create an Org-mode buffer that will trigger the crash.
Forgive my stupidness. With tabkey2.el there is a convenient way to get
the crash, but I forgot to add it:
- Change the line I pointed to above ("Emacs bug workaround")
- Bring up any org-mode file.
- Make sure you are on a line with its contents hidden. This is what I
use when I got it to crash right now (the traceback above is from when I
used a bigger file containing this, but I think the crash is similar):

Why does not cua--ena-cua-keys-keymap override Viper's definition
of BS, DEL etc? This keymap is in cua--keymap-alist. This alist is
before viper in emulation-mode-map-alists. So what happens?

- Add ks-to-vec. => store vec format
- Some cleanup.
- History keys?
- Different input formats? Use space at the beginning to force desc
style. Or C-t to toggle, put ^V first?

Only the "**" rows should be visible. (You can toggle that by pressing
TAB.) Place point on after at k in "Kim's key-sequence". Turn on
eval tabkey2.el <-- forgot to add (eval-when-compile (require 'cl))
Now it should crash. Eh, perhaps rather "it crashes". On my pc, w32.
So, please give us a recipe starting from `emacs -Q' with *every single
step* necessary to trigger the crash. Including a small sample
Org-mode file. It's always safer to assume we're complete idiots.
