Subject: [BUG] org-bibtex-read requires that bibtex is properly initialized
Date: Sat, 9 Jan 2021 22:45:21 +0100	[thread overview]

Hi,
 When calling org-bibtex-read on a fresh emacs on a text which is not a
.bib file, we get the following error: bibtex-parse-entry: Wrong type
argument: stringp, nil

This problem is solved if the (bibtex-set-dialect) function is called
before. Note that this function is called automatically the first time a
.bib file is opened, so many users may not have seen this problem.

I don't know what the right fix would be though. For now I call
(bibtex-set-dialect) in my init.el, but maybe org-bibtex-read should do it?

Thank you for org-mode!
Matthieu
