Steps to reproduce:

Include an entry like this in your org-capture-templates:
("t" "Todo" entry (file+headline "~/org/gtd.org" "Tasks")
         "* TODO %?\n  %i\n  %a")

Now, delete everything in ~/org/gtd.org except for a lone "Tasks" headline.

Put point on the next line, and start a capture with the template
above. Move point down to the beginning of the line with the "Tasks"
link, and C-k (org-kill-line).

For me, emacs crashes with "Fatal error (6)Aborted". If I first modify
the link and undo the changes, there is no crash.

Can anyone else reproduce?

Yes, I can. What version of emacs are you using?

Mine is: GNU Emacs 24.0.50.1 (x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu, GTK+ Version
2.22.0) of 2011-03-16. I'll update 

I tried running emacs under gdb, but I cannot reproduce it in that
situation. Nasty.

Nick

PS. I tried it with the following minimal.emacs by invoking emacs like
this:

   emacs -Q -l ~/minimal.emacs

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
;;; constant part
(add-to-list 'load-path (expand-file-name "~/src/emacs/org/org-mode/lisp"))
(add-to-list 'auto-mode-alist '("\\.\\(org\\|org_archive\\|txt\\)$" . org-mode))
(require 'org-install)
(global-set-key "\C-cl" 'org-store-link)
(global-set-key "\C-ca" 'org-agenda)

(setq org-capture-templates
'( ("T" "Todo" entry (file+headline "~/org/gtd.org" "Tasks") "* TODO %?\n  %i\n  %a")))
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

Thanks! Glad it's not just me.

I'm all the way back on "GNU Emacs 23.1.1 (x86_64-pc-linux-gnu, GTK+
Version 2.22.0) of 2010-11-26 on crested, modified by Debian".

I still can't figure out the exact conditions under which it happens,
but so far I've only seen the crash when the link I'm killing is to
the target headline. That could just be a red herring...

Not me: I'd be gladder if it was just you ;-)

That's worse than I thought: I was hoping that it was some recent change
that might have affected only 24.0.50 and I was further hoping that it
might have been fixed by now. I'll still update one of these days and try
it again, but the hope has dimmed considerably...

Whatever the color of the herring, emacs should *not* crash noway, nohow :-)
