Dear Carsten and all the other developers,

Let me first thank you for this wonderful package. However, I
have found a small but irritating bug when using
`org-clock-in-switch-to-state'. Nothing terribly important if you
have other priorities, but it still gets me every so often.

Thanks very much for your help in advance,


Hi Raimar, this bug is now fixed, thank you for your detailed and very clear report.

- Carsten

* Summary:
When the variable `org-clock-in-switch-to-state' is set and the
todo item to be clocked in is invisible in the org buffer,
`org-agenda-clock-in' switches the todo state of the wrong
headline. Instead of the actual item, the state of its visible
parent is changed.

* To reproduce this bug:

1) Starting with a clean emacs with only org-mode loaded,
  (setq org-clock-in-switch-to-state "STARTED")

2) Then open the file testtasks.org, which reads (the 2nd level
  heading will be folded by default):
,----[ testtasks.org ]
| -*- mode: org; -*-
| * Tasks:
| ** TODO Task1

3) Add this file to the agenda list with C-c [ and call the todo
  agenda with `M-x org-agenda' `t'. Then, press `I'
  (org-agenda-clock-in) on the line " testtasks: TODO Task1".

4) Now `testtasks.org' looks like this (of course, the Task1 line
  is still folded, but not the clock line):
,----[ testtasks.org ]
| -*- mode: org; -*-
| * STARTED Tasks:
| ** TODO Task1
|    CLOCK: [2008-06-04 Wed 14:00]

Note that the parent headline `Tasks' had the todo keyword
changed, not the `Task1' headline. When the `Task1' headline is
visible, its todo state gets changed correctly.

* Related obervation:
After reverting the todo state back to `TODO' and folding it, the
same bug occurs when one clocks into Task1 via
`C-u M-x org-clock-in'. The bug must therefore be in
`org-clock-in', where something like a `show-all' is missing in
the (save-excursion (save-restriction ...)) part (target-pos is
set to the correct value 61). But since I don't know org-mode
well enough, I will leave that to the experts.

* Configuration:
org-version: "6.04c" (latest git version), but also occuring in
            earlier versions
emacs-version: "22.1.1"
