Hello all,

I have had this issue for quite a while, and now it's finally time to
post it.  I'm using emacs 23.2.1 and orgmode 7.01trans
(release_7.01g.73.g29354) on windoze XP, together with Bernt's clock
history setup.

If I hit C-u C-c C-x C-i, the list of tasks to clock in starts
somewhere in the middle, right now at ``[J]''.  I've had this issue on
emacs 22 and with orgmode 6.36 ...

I did remove things related to clock history from my .emacs, with no
effect.

I am not sure how to track this issue down, so if the experts could
provide some hints, that'd be awesome!!

Thanks and Cheers
Markus

My list on Windows XP, Emacs 23.2.1 is also a bit weird.  The choices
for my list are:

[d] [1] [2] [5] [6] [7] [8] [9] [A] [B] [C] [D] [M] [O] [R]

On linux with a full clock history I get

[d] [1] [2] ... [9] [A] [B] ... [R] [S] with no gaps

I've noticed problems with the menu on my EEE PC which has a reduced
screen size so it couldn't display the entire menu and displayed the end
instead of beginning of the menu.  I've since reduced
org-clock-history-length from 36 to 28 so it fits on that device.

I tried reducing org-clock-history-length to 12, but to no avail.  It's
not that the list doesn't fit in the buffer, it starts at [J] and shows
only [J] through [Z] with no gaps.  I don't see an error message in the
minibuffer ...

Would it help if I attached a screenshot?

Thanks
Markus

I reduced org-clock-history-length to 12, to no avail.  It's not that
the list doesn't fit in the buffer ...  It just shows items [J] through
[Z] without any gaps...  

Any other suggestions?

Thanks
Markus

No I don't think attaching a screenshot will really add any value at
this point.  I'm looking at the org-clock-select-task function to try to
determine why it comes up with these weird selections.

These selection characters are made by doing computations with  
character numbers.
maybe Windows has a different underlying font (not ascii, something  
else), where
specific characters are located at different positions?

It's also not consistent.  Right now my windows version behaves the same
as linux, [1] .. [9] [A] .. [S] with no gaps.

As Carsten stated the character selections are based on ASCII and maybe
this doesn't work if the file is in some other weird encoding.

I haven't been able to reproduce the bad behaviour at will yet.

I have to correct myself.  After a hitting C-u C-c C-x C-i a few times,
the history is displayed correctly and has been displayed correctly for
more than a day now.

Wouldn't this suggest that the issue is related to the size of the
buffer containing the clock history?

Thanks and Cheers
