* Strange C-o behavior in Org-Mode


I am using ErgoEmacs. I cannot tell whether this behavior is due to
ErgoEmacs or Org-Mode.

Intermittently, C-o will alter its normal behavior.

Normally, C-o opens a new blank line. This is apparently what it does for

Occasionally, however, C-o behaves differently.
1. If C-o is executed at the beginning of a line, it pastes a one-line text
string and adds a newline at the end
2. If C-o is executed anywhere else, it behaves normally.

I suspect the text string is a single line I've previously grabbed with
C-k. However, I cannot consistently reproduce via this method. IIRC, the
text string is always a recent, familiar piece of text, possibly from the
same file.

Moreover, this behavior is limited to a single .org file. When one .org
file is affected, other .org files do not exhibit the behavior.

I do not THINK the behavior occurs except in org-mode, although since I
almost always am using org-mode when using Emacs, I cannot say for sure.

As a result, once a .org file is "bugged", I have to either avoid using
C-o, or kill the unwanted text string every time it appears.

A quick search of my .emacs file for "C-o" turns up nothing. I don't recall
ever deliberately fiddling with such a setting. ErgoEmacs does generate a
lot of funky keybinds. However, I have disabled those, and in any case
ErgoEmacs wants C-o to replace C-x C-f, which is unrelated to my problem.

I realize that this is not an ideal bug report. I am a non-technical user,
and cannot reliably reproduce the bug anyway. Call this a shot in the dark.


Refreshing org-mode with M-x org-mode eliminates the problem. I just
discovered this easy fix, so it's not much of a nuisance anymore. Still,
I'm curious, and this is already written!
