Subject: [PATCH] Fix org-entry-put (trouble with org-columns-edit-value)
Date: Tue, 6 Nov 2012 20:48:40 +0100	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <CAPM+gBQ4e3n6iUE=CK1as1Z2yT8F13wzJMxXFtiQP2AXaBfa_w@mail.gmail.com> (raw)

I have a trouble with org-columns-edit-value; updating property using
this command breaks property formatting.

If I update MyProp_B in,

   :MyProp_A: a
   :MyProp_B: b

I end up with:

   :MyProp_A: :MyProp_B: x a


I found that (match-beginning 0) returns different value after
(delete-region (match-beginning 0) (match-end 0)).  The strange thing
is that I could not reproduce it in "plain" Emacs without loading my

I am using a few week older version from Emacs trunk.
emacs-version: ""
emacs-bzr-version: "110740 rgm@gnu.org-20121030101856-aimepc487hfjuqqs"

I will try to reproduce the bug after updating Emacs (probably to the
24.3 release branch) and org-mode later.  But I thought I'd share the
patch first.
