Hi --

When I do C-c C-c to file away a note created with C-c r, I get the
error message "Wrong type argument: stringp, nil." The filing hints at
the top of the remember template disappear, leaving only the TODO I've
just created, but the note isn't filed away.

I get the same response when doing C-u C-c C-c. the other three options
(C-0 C-c C-c, C-1 C-c C-c, and C-2 C-c C-c) work as expected.

(Apologies if I've missed a recent change to the code that requires a
change in config; I've been swamped and haven't followed the release
notes as closely as I often do, but didn't find anything about this in
a search just now.)

org-mode version 6.16a, emacs 22.2.1 x86_64, Fedora 10

Hi John,

can you please create a backtrace, and post your setup for remember  
and org?

Thanks.

Hi Carsten --

I tested this morning on a different computer with identical config
files before I upgraded org-mode to the most recent version. On that
earlier version (I think it was 6.15trans), org-remember worked fine as
expected. After upgrading (to version 6.16d), I experienced the
behavior described in my earlier email. I just upgraded to the latest
version (6.16trans), and I still get the error. See backtrace and
org/remember set-up below.

(Incidentally, after reading Charles Cove's report of a similar
problem, I tried hitting C-c C-c a second time on the same remember
template; I still get the same error I received before.)

Hi John,

another fine example of how important it is to send your configuration  
with a bug report.  You have org-remember-store-without-prompt = nil,  
which puts you on a different path than I am normally testing.

I believe this bug is squashed now, let me know if not.
