Hi All,

I'd like to kindly bump this report.
It is an issue which has been around for some time.  The report provides 
a clear reproduction recipe, which stardiviner was able to reproduce, 
and still affects current "org-plus-contrib-20210208".  The report also 
provides a hopefully convincing code analysis of the affected function 
`org-refile-get-location' and a suggested fix (I just don't send a 
patch, because I can't provide CA).

Best regards,
Gustavo.
