* A visibility (ellipsis) problem with `C-c .'

Hi, Org people.

Consider a header having many sub-headers, and which is closed.  So I
only see that header, followed by an ellipsis at the end of that line.
On that header, command `C-c .' turns the initial star (or string
thereof) into a dash.  Now, I see an item with the same text as the
previous header, still followed by an ellipsis at the end of that line.
Now, TAB has no effect: it does not expand the ellipsis into the
previous contents (the minibuffer writes "EMPTY ENTRY", which is likely
improper)

So I have to fight a tiny bit for being able to edit the contents.  I go
one level up, collapse then expand, and everything becomes OK.

I don't understand: C-c . does org-time-stamp - how/why is the initial start
turned into a dash? Where exactly is the cursor at the time? If I do C-c . at
the end of the line (the final dot of the ellipis), a timestamp is inserted in
the header. I can still TAB to unfold.

Oops, Nick, sorry!  I meant `C-c -' (a dash, not a period).

I just use C-u C-u C-u TAB to expand everything wihtout moving point in
that case and fold it again later.
