Please replace `and' with `when' if side-effects are involved.

Also, note that

  (save-excursion (skip-chars-backward "*") (bolp))

is faster and more accurate than

  (string-match "\\*+" (buffer-substring (point-at-bol) (point)))

because the latter matches, e.g.,


where "|" is point.

Besides, I don't understand how this is related to empty headlines
since, AFAICT, this part of code is supposed to fix the issue on empty
