Actually, I found a few more problems

Multiple Lines
I had forgotten to test when invoking 'C-c -' on multiple lines.

If I have (with oddeven and org-adapt-indentation on) the following:
** Headline 2
** Converting 2
*** Converting 3
* Converting 1
** Converting 2
*** Converting 3
and I try to do 'C-c -' on the 5 bottom lines, I get:
** Headline 2
   - Converting 1
     - Converting 2
   - Converting 1
   - Converting 1
     - Converting 2

I would hope to get the following instead:
** Headline 2
   - Converting 1
     - Converting 2
   - Converting 1
     - Converting 2
       - Converting 3

Whenever possible, the converted lines should preserve their relative levels with their parent.
In the above example, we have 2 subtrees that should be preserved separately.
Of course, we can't keep all 5 items with levels relative to each other, otherwise we'd get the nonsensical effect:
  - orphan
- parent
But in other cases, entire subtrees can be preserved.

Strange region behavior and 'C-c *'
When highlighting a region and then applying 'C-c -', all the lines that have at least one character highlighted (anywhere on the line) will be converted.  That's good and as expected.

But the same doesn't happen with 'C-c *'.  There, it actually matters where the region starts/ends in the line.

For example, if you have
** Headline 2
   - Converting 1
If you triple-mouse-click "Converting 1" or if you just single-click the cursor on "Converting 1", then 'C-c *' will convert the line fine.
However, if you only select any of the letters on that line, e.g. the letter 'v', and then 'C-c *', then you get this:
** Headline 2
*** Con
verting 1

I have other problems that involve vimpulse and its visual mode, but I won't bother you with that :)
