Hi,

today I decided to bisect a major annoyance that has bugged me for quite 
some time now. I'm using a relatively old version of Emacs on Fedora 5. 
Emacs 21.4.1 from emacs-21.4-14.x86_64.rpm, to be exact.

Upon clocking in, a single CLOCK: line is converted to a :CLOCK: block, 
and this is where the trouble is. On my machine, this is what happens. 
Before:

* Test
   CLOCK: [2009-01-12 Mon 22:57]--[2009-01-12 Mon 22:57] =>  0:00

After clocking in:

* Test
   :CLOCK:

   CLOCK: [2009-01-12 Mon 22:57]--[2009-01-12 Mon 22:57] =>  0:00
   :END:CLOCK: [2009-01-12 Mon 23:27]

The exact changeset that broke this is: 
f70127dd3f95473ac80aa407bafca8f68f08e002
And within that specifically the "(org-clock-in): Use 
org-indent-line-function to indent clock lines." part (+1/-1 line).

When I revert this single line in the current head, it starts working again.

Actually I also have to revert the change to org-clock-find-position. 
Sorry, missed that before.

But then creating the clock table doesn't work anymore...
So all is lost ;).

Hi Stefan,

this problem seems only to happen in Emacs 21, and I have
stopped putting time into Emacs 21 support.  Can't you just
get a more recent version of Emacs?

I guess I'll have to...

I wasn't aware that Emacs 21 is not supported anymore. Maybe you could 
put a prerequisites note in the installation section of the manual.

There is a small cautionary note on the org-mode homepage under
"current version," which says:

.::  This package works on Emacs 23 and 22, and (with minor
restrictions) on Emacs 21 and XEmacs 21.  ::.

..perhaps it should read with minor, surprise restrictions... :-)  You
must have found one of them.

Hi Stefan,

you may also be able to work around this problem with

     (setq org-clock-into-drawer t)

(wich will put already the first clock line into a drawer), or with

     (setq org-clock-into-drawer nil)

(which will never create clock drawers).

Thanks a lot for your help. I will use (setq org-clock-into-drawer nil) 
on all my Emacs installations; I've never very much liked those drawers 
anyway.

I've already upgraded my Emacs in the meantime, though ;).
