Hi Charles,

this is a strange bug which should not happen.

Basically what seems to happen is this:

I do

   (find-file-no-select file)

followed by

   (with-current-buffer (get-file-buffer file))

For some strange reason, get-file-buffer cannot find the buffer
even though it has just been created.  Is there something strange
with the file name, is is accessed through a shortcut/link?

Can you please try this:

In the file where you want to store the item, insert "(buffer-file- 
name)",
press `C-c C-e' with the cursor after that line and memorize the result.

Then compare with the result of evaluating

(expand-file-name "...")

where you insert the file name exactly as given in the remember template
you are using to produce this bug.

Do the two file name representations differ?

This is just for my curiosity - I have modified the code so that it  
should
now work anyway, hopefully.

- Carsten
