Hi there,

Today I stumbled over a strange problem, to which I did not found a
solution.  I am using Emacs 23 on Mac OS X and on Ubuntu (9.10) with a
nearly identical setup (thanks Dropbox!).
On the Mac machines, remembering with org-remember works wonderful and
makes me happy; but on the Ubuntu side, I am running in an error
"wrong-number-of arguments", which can be traced to the following call
(org-remember-mode 1) in this form:

	;; Turn on org-mode in the remember buffer, set local variables
	(let ((org-inhibit-startup t)) (org-mode) (org-remember-mode 1))
	(if (and file (string-match "\\S-" file) (not (file-directory-p file)))
	    (org-set-local 'org-default-notes-file file))
---
  (this starts on line 543 in the current version of this morning)

The call itself looks unsuspicious to my inexperienced I and I have
now idea why Emacs would complain about it in Ubuntu and not in Mac
(there is a very slight difference of about two weeks between
compiling them), so I really have no idea what went wrong and how to
fix it.

As always, any help appreciated,

Christian

Hi,

I am having trouble getting org-remember to work.  I have
(require 'org) with several other org related settings in my
.emacs but when I try M-x org-remember on a TODO item (or anywhere
else) I get:

   Debugger entered--Lisp error: (error "Autoloading failed to define 
function org-remember")
     signal(error ("Autoloading failed to define function org-remember"))
     error("%s" "Autoloading failed to define function org-remember")
     (condition-case act-on-choice (let (...) (setq 
icicle-candidate-action-fn nil) (funcall ... cmd-choice)) (quit 
(icicle-try-switch-buffer orig-buff) nil) (error 
(icicle-try-switch-buffer orig-buff) nil (error "%s" ...)))
     (let* ((orig-buff ...) (orig-window ...) (use-file-dialog nil) 
(last-command last-command) new-last-cmd (icicle-candidate-action-fn 
...)) nil (condition-case act-on-choice (let ... ... ...) (quit ... nil) 
(error ... nil ...)) (setq this-command new-last-cmd))
     icicle-execute-extended-command()
     call-interactively(icicle-execute-extended-command)

If I don't load the icicle package I get roughly the same error:

   Debugger entered--Lisp error: (error "Autoloading failed to define 
function org-remember")
     execute-extended-command(nil)
     call-interactively(execute-extended-command)

If I load-library org-remember then I can call the function without
error but it doesn't populate the buffer with anything and if I enter
some text and type C-cC-c I get an error about a nonexistent region.

Any ideas?

Emacs 22.3.1
