Remember to cover the basics, that is, what you expected to happen and
what in fact did happen.  You don't know how to make a good report?  See

     https://orgmode.org/manual/Feedback.html#Feedback

Your bug report will be posted to the Org mailing list.
------------------------------------------------------------------------

Sometimes when I use org-capture to create a new headline, that headline
ends with a non-empty partial line that isn’t terminated by a newline.

This causes the next headline to be corrupted, because the * is appended
to the last line of the new entry.

Example:

* new entry
some text * old entry

I tried adding the empty-lines options and empty-lines-before and
empty-lines-after, but this did not fix the problem.

This sometimes causes entries to no longer be recognized as headlines,
so my task planning does not show them (for example in org-agenda view,
clocktable, and kanban.el).

It would be great if it could be ensured that capturing a new entry can
never modify the first line of another entry.

Best wishes,
Arne

I believe this issue has already been resolved on the master branch.
There have been a few bug reports and commits in this area; I think
6882478ca (capture: Fix org-capture-place-entry narrow bounds,
2020-05-29) is the most recent fix.

Thank you for the info!

(how can I close the bug?)

Best wishes,

This list isn't hooked up to a tracker, so there's nothing to close.

From memory, this has been fixed in the master branch, which will be
released as 9.4 soon.

If you can test master and confirm the fix, that'd be great.

Thanks,
