Some comments and a backtrace (I used the corrected 2nd revision):

1. When traversing the file header, goes one line at a time.  I would
   expect to go to the next blank line.  In the attached Org file, from
   somewhere on #+TITLE to the blank line before the first headline.

2. Skips whole source block even if there are blank lines.  So can't
   navigate large source blocks for small edits.  Try on the python
   source block under the first headline.

3. Goes through each row of a table instead of going over the table in
   one go.  Start with cursor on "From ConDBBrowser:".

4. Skips the whole body under a headline when followed by link.  Try
   putting point on the headline "Important points" and move; you will
   jump to "Tagging Issues" instead of the link and the list after.

How can I test going backward?


Open source is the future. It sets us free.
