Hi, Org people.

Given this Org fragment:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
* Essai
- Le
- petit :: chaperon
- rouge
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

with the cursor on the "L", command `C-u C-c C-c' yields:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
* Essai
- [ ] Le
- petit :: chaperon
- [ ] rouge
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

while I was expecting:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
* Essai
- [ ] Le
- [ ] petit :: chaperon
- [ ] rouge
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

Is there a bug, or do I miss something?

François

P.S. In case it matters, I'm using a recent pull of Org mode.

If you try C-u C-c C-c on the "- petit :: chaperon" item, 
you will read this message

  "Cannot add a checkbox to a description list item"

So no, there is no bug here.

HTH,

Ps: I would advise not mixing list types, e.g. not mixing
plain list and descriptive list.

Advice taken!  Thanks!

OK.  I've been a bit mislead by the fact that if I explicitly write:

   - [ ] petit :: chaperon

both the "[ ]" and the "petit" word get highlighted.  If we may not mix
plain lists and descriptive lists, and I happen to write lines like
above, maybe the "petit" word should lose its highlighting?  Org mode
helps me a bit more, say, if I replace "-" by "*" above, none of "[ ]"
or "petit" are highlighted, so I immediately see I am doing something
wrong.

Thanks as well, Tom! :-)

François.

P.S. Tom, I tried to reply to you alone instead of through the list, but
the message was rejected.  Strangely, your message had:

  From: Tom Regner <tomgoochesa.de@iro.umontreal.ca>

I'm re-replying through the list as a way to tell you, just in case the
problem would lie nearer your end than mine, and that you might be lucky
enough to have some control over it.  Who knows! :-)
