Hi John,

The problem didn't occur this morning when I constructed the agenda, so
I suspect you may be right about it having to do with some transitory
state.  However, I couldn't provoke the error by creating unsaved buffer
with the appropriate name, but I shall look more carefully at what
buffers are open next time the problem crops up.

Thanks

Loris
