recent maint on emacs 25.

i know this is an imperfect bug report with no mce that you can
probably repro.  but perhaps it can trigger an idea that could lead
directly to a fix.  my brain and computer limitations cannot do better
at this time.

when i run m-ret at the caret i get this bt.  my intent is to make a
new list item containing prefer as its header.

   1) [ ] towels
      1) [ ] 12 very large (asdfasdf asdfasdf) solid color,
         like the ones i use, thick -- asdafsdf -- ^prefer
         to get them slightly wider
         - not any ...
         - not any pattern (something like different color on
           end might be ok, dunno) or anything garish
      2) [ ] 6 dark aasdfa dfnkajs dkfaskdf kasdn
         fkasdnkfanksdfn kasdfn
   2) asdfasdfasdf

The example, instructions, and backtrace you provided are all very
helpful.  Thanks.

I don't have more time to spend on this at the moment, but some quick
notes.

  * The error you show happens on maint, but doesn't on master.  It
    looks like it went away with 07a4a7286 (list: Fix regression when
    inserting items, 2020-07-06), which was prompted by this report:
    https://orgmode.org/list/CAE-tX7iH59DNO8K2a6O_Wu7_DqqRgPJ5r_y=ZQdusTcR5vrpqw@mail.gmail.com/

    I think this can be cherry picked to maint.

  * Although the error is gone, the result still looks off.  In
    particular, the "2) [ ] 6 dark" line loses its bullet.

I suspect that the remaining issue is related to the error you show
above.  Here's a bit of context from org-list-struct-apply-struct:

    (looking-at org-list-full-item-re)
    ;; a.  Replace bullet
    (unless (equal old-bul new-bul)
      (replace-match new-bul nil nil nil 1))
    ;; b.  Replace checkbox.
    (cond
     ((equal (match-string 3) new-box))
     ((and (match-string 3) new-box)
      (replace-match new-box nil nil nil 3))
     ((match-string 3)

The code downstream of (looking-at ...) assumes a match, but it seems
that's not valid, even after 07a4a7286.  The patch below guards the
downstream code with (when (looking-at ...)) and fixes this particular
"lost bullet" case I mentioned above.

The change doesn't make any tests fail, but I'd need to look into the
code a bit more to be comfortable with the change.  (For instance, is
the fact that there isn't a match here a sign that something's going
wrong upstream?)  Also, the patch should include a test that is
distilled from your example.

Yes, the problem lies in `org-list-insert-item'. I pushed a fix and
a test for that.

I applied the fix on master because it is built on top of another fix
from there. So no, it should be available in Org 9.4 only.
