I have a capture template which prompts for a file name and uses this

   "New blog post (ianbarton.net)"

Are you using custom-set-variables to set org-capture-templates?  If
not, I think you need to unquote capture-pelican-draft-file.

On the current git master the function capture-pelican-draft-file
doesn't seem to be evaluated, resulting in a "File name doesn't exist"
error. Doing git bisect seems to point at the commit below:

8860c92f62dac87267416708e81bc8aec026fcc7 is the first bad commit

That commit is about org-babel, which I don't think should have anything
to do with org-capture.  But you said you bisected it, so you mean that
before that commit, your code works as-is?

Thanks, I'll redo my bisect. I was being harassed by the dog, so might have made a mistake! However, the previous commit looks as though it might have been the one responsible:

commit 5485170263a46fa17db67b0324c4c4e48bcdfe49
Author: Nicolas Goaziou <address@hidden>

    org-capture: Remove forbidden value type from "file" templates

I'll try unquoting capture-pelican-draft-file.
