Hi Carsten,

I thought I should mention this sooner rather than later to postpone any
up-coming release you might be thinking about :)  I'm assuming this is
an org-mode bug and not some inconsistency in my setup but that's not
proven yet.

I have an issue with refile going to the wrong place fairly
consistently.  I'm not sure how long this has been going on.  I'll try
to isolate a test case for this.

I have a note I want to refile

,----[ refile.org ]
| * org-mode-lisp table function for column values :NOTE:

which is org-mode related from a recent article on this list and when I
refile to 'Research org-mode (norang.org)' it ends up in the right tree
but under the wrong task.  I'm refiling a note called 'org-mode lisp
table function for column values' (ie. the last time I refiled the note
it ended up under 'Research Website Security' instead of the right

,----[ norang.org ]
| * Research...
| ** Research Website Security
| *** org-mode-lisp table function for column values :NOTE:

I've been using undo after the refile to put it back in the refile.org
buffer and removing it from the norang.org buffer then redoing the
refile operation.

I recently switched my org-refile to try out direct ido refiling and
noticed this problem after that change.  I used to file in steps from
file.org/level1task/level2task etc and now I'm trying to file directly
in one step to see if that's faster.

So far it seems to do things wrong when the target tree is folded (or
partially revealed) but sometimes it gets it right.  It's one of your
favourite types of bugs ;)

My target tree looks like this:

,----[ norang.org ]
| * Research
| ** TODO Research Rails...
| ** TODO Research Java...
| ** TODO Research .NET...
| ** TODO Research GCC and C++...
| ** TODO Research Accounting Packages...
| ** TODO Research Tools...
| ** TODO Research Object Oriented Design...
| ** TODO Research org-mode...
| ** TODO Research VPN in Linux...
| ** TODO Research Website Security...
| ** TODO Research CSS...
| ** TODO Research Emacs...
| ...
