This sounds like it might be related to recent end-of-line changes and an
even more recent (not yet applied) patch I posted.

Which version of org-mode are you running?

I can't reproduce this in a recent git checkout. With visual-line-mode
off and org-special-ctrl-a/e nil, C-e goes straight to the (real) end of
the line in one go.

On the other hand, with the same settings, C-a doesn't go back to the
*beginning* of the line in one go for me. This bug is fixed by the patch
I posted to the list.

At least in the latest git, end-of-line doesn't even check the value of
line-move-visual, so it's setting shouldn't have any effect at all on
org-end-of-line. (org-beginning-of-line *does* check line-move-visual; my
patch fixes this to check visual-line-mode instead.)

Agreed (see the recent discussion thread about my patch).

Looks like you're not the only one trying to fix this :)
