Ok, I restarted emacs and tried again, and now I am not given this
mini-buffer message at all. On restart, I found an error in my .emacs,
which could have been causing this issue. Chalk that up to confused
internal state I guess.

However, org-closed-in-range still doesn't seem to be doing anything
interesting, as far as I can tell. It folded up my org file, but thats
about it.

Maybe there is a better way for me to get at what I want, and I just
haven't found it yet (I am pretty new at org) and debugging this might
not be the best thing to do if there is something better to solve my
need. I basically just need to, at the end of the week, produce a report
of what I've worked on for that week, both things I finished, but also
things that are still in progress. Including the time spent is useful
too. I can go into the agenda and hit 'R' to get a time-table at the end
of the page, but I need a more granual day-by-day breakdown (Monday:
4hrs, worked on X, Y and completed Z).

thanks for your response!
