Hi all,

I've been having an odd problem where if I try to change my text 
scale on my org capture buffers, the scale keeps increasing, and 
increases the scale on the parent of the indirect org-capture 
buffer, on each capture.

I'm using org-mode 9.5, emacs 29.0.50.

Debugging into the issue, I realized I can only reproduce this if 
the org-mode buffer has variable-pitch-mode on.

Here's a short repro that works on emacs -Q (of course, you may 
want to change the path):

(require 'face-remap) (defun ash/big-font () 
  "Creates a font that is big enough for about 20 lines of text." 
  (interactive) (let ((text-scale-mode-amount (/ (frame-height) 
  20))) 
    (text-scale-mode 1))) 
 
(require 'org-capture) (add-hook 'org-capture-mode-hook 
#'ash/big-font) (setq org-capture-templates '(("c" "Capture" entry 
(file "~/Desktop/test.org") nil))) (find-file 
"~/Desktop/test.org") (variable-pitch-mode 1) 

After evaluating this, every time you call org-capture, the text 
size will increase, until the text size is so large emacs crashes!

I have also tried to reproduce this without org-mode, just using 
indirect buffers, but can't do it.  Something that org-mode is 
doing is causing this, but org-capture is complicated enough that 
I can't really see what it could be.  I can and will continue 
looking into this, but I'm curious if anyone might have a clue as 
to what is going wrong here.

I tracked this down to a bug in emacs, which happens only when indirect
buffers are cloned. Reported as bug#53294 with a patch.
