Re: [Orgmode] Error with org-store-link in gnus Article buffer

Has anyone else seen this problem?

I cannot see how this can happen. When in an article buffer in gnus, org-mode first creates the sumary with (gnus-article-show-summary). This function is defined in gnus-art.el, and gnus-art.el also contains (require 'gnus-sum). So I cannot see how this bachtrace can exist, unless there is an installation problem with gnus.

Dale, maybe you can make a step-by-step example, starting from a fresh emacs, listing the exact keys needed to produce this bug?

I get this backtrace:

Looks like some kind of macro being called as a function problem? I don't know much about emacs macros, but I'm thinking there might be some interaction
between the system gnus and the gnus I locally installed.

Anyway, I figured org needed to know the source of those macros, so I added a (require 'gnus-sum) to the eval-when-compile expression. It seems to work.

Oh, and the version number was wrong too.  Here is a diff:
