bug#11774: org-mode causes undo boundaries to be lost

From: Toby Cubitt
Subject: bug#11774: org-mode causes undo boundaries to be lost
Date: Sun, 24 Jun 2012 23:27:55 +0200
User-agent: Mutt/1.5.21 (2010-09-15)

Steps to reproduce, starting from "emacs -Q":
1. C-x C-f test.org
2. M-x org-mode
3. M-: (add-hook 'post-command-hook
        (lambda () (message "%s" buffer-undo-list)) nil t)
4. type "a"
5. C-<SPC> C-<SPC>
6. type "bc"

Expected behaviour:
contents of `buffer-undo-list' after step 6. should be
((2 . 4) nil (1 . 2) (t . -1))

Actual behaviour:
contents of `buffer-undo-list' after step 6. are
((2 . 4) (1 . 2) (t . -1))

For some unknown reason, org-mode is causing the undo boundary between
the (2 . 4) and (1 . 2) entries to be removed from `buffer-undo-list'.

If we try the same thing under another major mode (e.g. replace
step 2 with "M-x text-mode"), then `buffer-undo-list' does contain the
undo boundary, as expected.

Step 3 is there to monitor what's going on. The same results are obtained
if that step is omitted. However, with the post-command-hook enabled, you
can see that the undo boundary is still there after typing "b" in
step 6, but gets deleted after typing "c".

This might look like a minor bug, but it can have severe
consequences. E.g. when using undo-tree-mode in org-mode, the corrupted
`buffer-undo-list' contents cause undo-tree-mode to discard the entire
undo history.
