Hello Jan,

I've extracted the org relevant bit from your post.

Well, first of all, I ensure that my load path is set before anything
else is done so that anything that might need org will cause org to be
loaded from the right place.  I have this line as the first line in my

(add-to-list 'load-path "~/git/org-mode/lisp")

where I have downloaded the most recent version of org into

Avoiding problems with incompatible packages or new bugs is impossible,
however.  The solution is to avoid upgrade-itis and only upgrade when
necessary.  Although I track org from git, I don't update all the time
and only do so when I know I will have some time to deal with any
repercussions.  (like today where I upgraded both Emacs and org because
I know I have no immediate deadlines)

Most other packages, I seldom upgrade if ever.
