Hi all,

I use an own function to save the current agenta to a text file, which I
display in a tooltip on my desktop:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
(defun th-org-mode-init ()
 (add-hook 'after-save-hook 'th-org-update-agenda-file t t))

(add-hook 'org-mode-hook 'th-org-mode-init)

;; TODO: This errors when calling C-x s after modifying things in the agenda.
(defun th-org-update-agenda-file (&optional force)
 (when (and (eq major-mode 'org-mode)
            (member buffer-file-name org-agenda-files))
       (let ((file "/tmp/org-agenda.txt"))
         (org-write-agenda file))))))
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

This works fine when I save an agenda file while in its buffer, but when I edit the file via agenda commands and hit `C-x s', I'm asked if I want
to save "/home/horn/repos/org/uni.org" and say yes, I get this error:

This probably happens because you are relying on org-agenda-list which is supposed to display the agenda window and in this way set the selected window and buffer. In non-interactive use, the buffer is created, but display is delayed until after the next idle moment.

Not tested, but this may help:

Replace (org-agenda-write) with this:

(with-current-buffer org-agenda-buffer-name (org-write-agenda file))
