Hello everyone,

I looked into using text properties to hide all the stars in org headings
(with org-starless-mode [1]),
and noticed that `org-cycle' didn't reliably cycle the visibility of
headings anymore.

Trying to find the reason for this, I found that `org-cycle' uses
`move-beginning-of-line' in combination
with a regexp to detect headings. The problem is that
`move-beginning-of-line' ignores invisible text
such that the regexp fails to match. The attached patch changes
`move-beginning-of-line' to
`beginning-of-line', which does not ignore invisible text.

This solves the issue with hidden stars, but I have a feeling that I'm
missing something. Is there a
problem with using `beginning-of-line' instead of `move-beginning-of-line'
or could this patch be

Thanks a lot for looking into this,
