Hi Markus,

it appears that this bug is now fixed in CVS Emacs, and if you
get it installed on your machine, you should be able to use
org-indent-mode safely.

Hi Markus,

yes, I can reproduce this, and I will file an Emacs bug report.
This is an Emacs problem, not an Org-mode problem.


that's good stuff.  Glad it worked for you.

Thanks for putting in the time to narrow it down.  For the time
being, until this problem is solved, it is better not to use
org-indent-mode, or at least to never switch to overview from
an expanded state.

Will do.  Hope they'll fix it soon ...

Are you using org-indent-mode?

Yes I do.

This is the configuration I use:

#+STARTUP: content
#+STARTUP: hidestars
#+STARTUP: indent

followed by 3 lines of #+TAG.

I use the :COMMENTS: drawer very frequently to jot down comments on specific tasks etc. and the :IDEAS: drawer only occasionally, but the
happens when point is in either of them.

I'm sorry I couldn't reproduce a minimal file that shows the crash.


does the crash happen reproducible in the big file?
If yes, would you mind sharing that file with just me?

Attached is a (somewhat) minimized file that reproduces the bug, not
necessarily on the frst try, but cycling with S-TAB *inside* a drawer works reliably for me. Please let me know if this file works for you.


I have Emacs crash occasionally with org-indent-mode as well, I think
this is an Emacs bug, the features with line-prefix are still new.
But if there is a reproducible case, we could at least make a good
backtrace including the C code and a core dump, maybe some Emacs
developer could do something with it.

Please also test if the crashes disappear when you no longer
use org-indent-mode.

Please let me know if you need further info.

Hello all,

emacs crashes reproducibly when using S-Tab in an expended drawer.
noticed this with my org-file, which is rather big. I tried to narrow
down to a minimal org file, but could not reproduce the crash. While
to narrow things down, I noticed that drawers get corrupted when using
multiple times, looks like the :END: line goes missing.

I'm happy to provide more info if you tell me what you're looking for, but as I said, I wasn't able to create a minimal org file showing the
 I'm wondering if anybody else has the same problems ...
