Subject: 26.3; org-indent-mode's line-prefix text property flickers near overlays
Date: Thu, 28 May 2020 21:54:09 +0200	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <87a71rhm3i.fsf@gmail.com> (raw)

Hello,

The line-prefix text property set by org-indent-mode sometimes vanishes
when typing near a line where an overlay is applied.  To reproduce:

- emacs -Q
- C-x C-f repro.org
- M-x org-indent-mode
- M-: (insert "* heading\ntext")
- M-:
(let ((ov (make-overlay (point-at-bol) (point-at-bol)))
      (val (propertize " " 'display '((left-fringe right-triangle)))))
  (overlay-put ov 'before-string val))
- RET
- a

When "a" is inserted, org-indent-mode's line-prefix disappears on the
*previous* line ("text").  It remains gone as long as I type
self-inserting characters, until

- I type certain commands, e.g. RET or C-j, or

- I insert a closing delimiter that makes
  blink-paren-post-self-insert-function blink the corresponding opening
  delimiter, e.g. ')' or ']'.

Then the line-prefix shows up again.


This recipe is simplified; I originally found this bug in Org files
under version control with diff-hl-flydiff-mode enabled.  When typing in
new content, the preceding line is shoved to the left until I stop
typing; after diff-hl-flydiff-delay, diff-hl's idle timer kicks in and
updates its overlay, which as a side-effect makes org-indent-mode's
line-prefix come back up.

See [1] for my original bug report to diff-hl and some crude
"analysis".


I'm clearly out of my depth; at least I hope I used the correct terms to
describe the symptoms I've observed.  Let me know if there is anything I
can do to help debug this.

Thank you for your time.
