Thanks for taking a look Nick.  My real usage also uses a much bigger
file and sometimes it works when the .emacs file is open or if I have
been working in the gtd.org file but I haven't been able to track down
when it works or doesn't.  Hence this MWE.

Adding (setq debug-on-error t) to the top of the file gtd then
proceeding as before gives me the *Backtrace*:

  org-goto-local-search-headings("My workflow" nil nil)
  call-interactively(gtd t nil)
  call-interactively(execute-extended-command nil nil)

which doesn't even really look like an error, does it?
