Thanks, this is really helpful to know for future patches. And thanks so
much for the fixes you and Kyle made.

Oops, yes I see the problem in the string-match there!

Thanks. What I meant was fixing a very specific circumstance "when the
cursor is at the beginning of an empty headline." This is the scenario
affected by the original bug. The earlier patches (450452de4b and
44ec473c1) introduced a more general logic of moving the cursor forward
at any point before the beginning of an empty headline (including when
positioned on an asterisk). I see the commit has already been made, so
hopefully this email will serve as clarification.

Best,

Matt
