Subject: [PATCH] Fix (wrong-type-argument integer-or-marker-p nil) in org-agenda-get-todos.
Date: Sun, 4 Mar 2012 23:47:14 +0000	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20120304234713.GA27660@atlantic.linksys.moosehall> (raw)

org-get-category can sometimes invoke org-refresh-category-properties
which can perform a re-search-forward which destroys the existing
match data.  When called from org-agenda-get-todos, this can result in
its subsequent call to (match-beginning 2) to return nil, which when
passed as the first parameter to buffer-string causes the above error.
