Starting from emacs -Q:
1. C-x C-f test.org
2. Write something like the following:
Here is a table:
|Data1|Data2
3. Make sure to leave the last column without the "|"
4. C-o, with point at the table row.
5. I expected to get a clean row:
Here is a table:
|       |       |
| Data1 | Data2 |

but I got:
Here is a table:
|       | Data2 |
| Data1 | Data2 |

I realize this might be a corner-case, but I'm used to leave the last
column without "|", because TAB is smart enough to add it for me.  So
the "Data2" repetition becomes a little annoying.

If I put point at the row
| Data1 | Data2
the following:
(org-table-clean-line (buffer-substring (line-beginning-position) (line-end-position)))
evaluates to a string that has characters other than "|" and space, but
org-table-clean-line says it returns a string with only "|" and space.

I've tweaked the relevant regexp in org-table-clean-line to
"|\\([ \t]*?[^ \t\r\n|][^\r\n|]*\\)|?"
and that fixes it for me.

Best regards,
Mauro.
