Subject: Bug: org-link-descriptive needs to be buffer-local [9.4.4 (release_9.4.4 @ /usr/local/share/emacs/28.0.50/lisp/org/)]

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


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

I stumbled upon weird behavior when using `org-toggle-link-display', and
I finally checked what that is about.

- use `org-toggle-link-display' in org buffer A, and (coming
  from the defaults) links are now shown in full (not just the
  description), but only in buffer A
- switch to org buffer B, still only showing the description part, and
  again use `o-t-l-d' --- nothing changes
- the state for new org buffers is as before, onle link descriptions are

This behavior is very confusing, IMO.  The reason is simple.  The
display hiding comes from changing the `buffer-invisibility-spec', which
is automatically buffer-local.  But the state of the org toggle is kept
in `org-link-descriptive', which is global!

I suggest a simple fix that I just tested: make `org-link-descriptive'
automatically buffer-local, by adding ":local t" to the defcustom.

NB: This also fixes a related bug that

    eval: (org-toggle-link-display)

in the file-local works properly --- it did not work for me before.
