OK, so after that yesterday, I went ahead and added
(electric-indent-local-mode -1) to my org-mode hook.  Then today upon
re-starting Emacs, I am back to not working.

By not working I mean:  Pressing enter goes to column 0 as it should,
however then pressing <TAB> does nothing.  Where previously it would
jump to same level as indented above.

My settings are:

- electric-indent-local-mode nil (local in each Orgmode buffer, set via

- org-adapt-indentation 'headline-data

I am also using adaptive-wrap-prefix-mode to do a soft wrap on left
side, not sure if this is involved or not.

Any help is greatly appreciated, as this is maddeningly aggravating.
