This happened after I made my first recfile, and populated it with one
placeholder entry to see if it works. (It’s attached.) The next time I
opened Emacs, I opened the file again, and it was now in navigation mode (as

edit the buffer, I pressed B, and the error happened.

“rec-remove-continuation-line-marker-overlays” (rec-mode.el:988). The
“mapc” sexp returns nil, while the following “setq” sexp raises the

  "Delete all the continuation line markers overlays."
  (mapc 'delete-overlay rec-continuation-line-markers-overlays)
  (setq rec-continuation-line-markers-overlays))
