In the following post,
artscan showed that org capture templates don't work in org v.8.2.10 when
invoked from within a keyboard macro. I reproduce his results here.

The following function
(defun test-inside-kbd-macro ()
  (print (ignore-errors (org-store-link nil))))
gives different results depending on how it was executed. 

(1) M-x test-inside-kbd-macro gives
"[[file:~/git/org/refile.org::*kbd%20capture][kbd capture]]" (string), but 
(2)(execute-kbd-macro (read-kbd-macro "M-x test-inside-kbd-macro RET"))
gives ("file:~/git/org/refile.org::*kbd capture" "kbd capture") (list). 

Consider the last 10 lines of function org-store-link. Note that in Case (1)
the value of the function test-inside-kbd-macro is created using
(org-make-link-string link desc) but in Case (2) it is created by (car
Hence the differing results. 

Consequently, the following keyboard test macro, (in which C-c c is bound to
M-x org-capture)
      (fset 'jj   [?\C-c ?c ?t ?j ?j  return ?\C-c ?\C-c]) 
which invokes this capture template definition
   (setq org-capture-templates '(("t" "Todo" entry (file "~/org/j.org"))))
produces the following error message:
After 0 kbd macro iterations: byte-code: Capture abort: (wrong-type-argument
stringp (file:~/org/todo.org::*Tasks Tasks))

I consider this a bug because such macros which invoked the capture template
did work in org v7.8.02. 

The org-mode configuration and backtrace for these bugs are available in the
preceding stackoverflow post and also in this previous
