Package: emacs24-common
Version: 24.3+1-1.1
Severity: normal

sh-learn-buffer-indent run on a shell script buffer fails with:

        sh-learn-buffer-indent: Buffer is read-only: #<buffer *indent*>

That's because buffer *indent* is a read-only occur-mode buffer,
created by function sh-mark-init (in sh-script.el), called from function
sh-learn-buffer-indent and being written to by function sh-mark-line.

This looks like like an upstream bug (Cc:ed).

I wrote a piece of advice that works around that problem:

(defadvice occur-mode (after occur-mode-buffer-writable activate)
  "Make the *indent* buffer writable"
  (if (string-equal "*indent*" (buffer-name))
      (read-only-mode -1)))

Still, the proper solution would be to correct the code in sh-script.el.
I recall sh-learn-buffer-indent worked fine in emacs 23.4, but don't
take my word for it.
