* org-drill problem: questions are blank

From time to time Org-drill shows me a blank window instead of a
question. The frame, mode line and prompt to answer are visible, but
there's nothing in the window at all. As a workaround I can type "t" to
edit the tags, and the question will appear.

A sample file is enclosed. It's a new file without any of the org-drill
property drawers just to keep the example short and to avoid having to
wait for the question to be scheduled to be shown again, but the problem
*does* still happen when the drawers are present.

To reproduce the bug, run org-drill in drillbug.org; the question "MC"
gives a blank screen.

I'm using org-drill with the latest version of Org-mode, git commit
2f58e3c011ec84f621905332d8df68b83da580d9, on Emacs 24.3.1, 2014-09-30.

Thanks!  I can reproduce your issue with a relatively fresh emacs 25 and
org from git.

AFAICS the window gets blanked sometimes in function
org-toggle-latex-fragment of org.el in line

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
;; Work around a bug that doesn't restore window's start
;; when widening back the buffer.
(set-window-start nil window-start)
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

A workaround would be to comment out just this line.

I don't know if this is a reliable fix though.

Marco,

Thanks for the suggestion, but this doesn't make the bug go away for me.

Peter.

Hi Peter,

That's awkward.  

Just to be sure: did you evaluate the function after changing the line
in function org-toggle-latex-fragment of org.el to

; (set-window-start nil window-start)

?  I ask since this fixed the issue for me and to not give up too early.

Yes, I even restarted Emacs.

Did you byte-compile org.el then?

That's the thing I always forget. That does appear to work now, thank
you!
