Subject: Bug: org-columns--compute-spec tries to set CLOCKSUM property [9.4.4 (release_9.4.4-231-gf46925 @ /home/nick/elisp/org-mode/lisp/)]
Date: Mon, 05 Apr 2021 14:56:46 -0400	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <87r1jo5zm9.fsf@alphaville.usersys.redhat.com> (raw)

The following MWE illustrates:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---

* Goal 3
  :ID: goal_3

  #+BEGIN: columnview :hlines 4 :id goal_3 :maxlevel 3


** TODO Task 1
   CLOCK: [2020-01-26 18:05]--[2020-01-26 Mon 19:16] =>  1:11

   Task body

*** TODO Subtask 1
     CLOCK: [2020-01-28 Tue 15:45]--[2020-01-28 Tue 16:45] =>  1:00
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

Starting with `emacs -Q foo.org', place the cursor on the `#+BEGIN:
columnview' line and type `C-c C-c`. That produces a table (although
the entries are wrong):

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
  #+BEGIN: columnview :hlines 4 :id goal_3 :maxlevel 3
  | ITEM      | CLOCKSUM |
  | Goal 3    |     2:11 |
  | Task 1    |     2:11 |
  | Subtask 1 |     1:00 |
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

But then doing it again fails with the following (elided) backtrace:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
Debugger entered--Lisp error: (error "The CLOCKSUM property cannot be set with ‘org-entr...")
  signal(error ("The CLOCKSUM property cannot be set with ‘org-entr..."))
  error("The %s property cannot be set with `org-entry-put'" "CLOCKSUM")
  org-entry-put(147 "CLOCKSUM" "1:00")
  (progn (org-entry-put (point) property new-value))
  (if (and update value (not (equal value new-value))) (progn (org-entry-put (point) property new-value)))
  (let ((new-value (org-trim summary))) (if (and update value (not (equal value new-value))) (progn (org-entry-put (point) property new-value))))
  org-columns--compute-spec(("CLOCKSUM" "CLOCKSUM" 6 ":" nil) t)
  org-columns(nil nil)
  org-columns--capture-view(3 nil nil nil nil 35)
  org-dblock-write:columnview((:name "columnview" :hlines 4 :id goal_3 :maxlevel 3 :indentation-column 2 :content #("\n" 0 1 (org-category "foo500" wrap-prefix #("  " 0 2 (face org-indent)) line-prefix #("  " 0 2 (face org-indent)) fontified t))))
  (save-excursion (goto-char (org-element-property :post-affiliated context)) (org-update-dblock))
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

Part of the problem seems to be that `org-get-entry' manufactures
CLOCKSUM properties out of the CLOCK entries above, but
`org-put-entry' knows that that's a special property and refuses to
put it. But I think the major fail is in `org-columns--compute-spec'
which takes the property at face value and just passes it along. I
believe it needs to do whatever accumulation it is supposed to do and
set a text property to store the value in the headline, but that's
guessing on my part.

I saw this on Emacs SE (the above example is a simplified version of
the example in the post):


and it has apparently been reported once before:


Emacs : GNU Emacs 28.0.50 (build 1, x86_64-pc-linux-gnu, GTK+ Version
