Bug Description

I'm using GTG 0.2.9 on a Gentoo Linux system. I noticed I can make GTG crash if I write a double hyphen "--" in the description area of a task and then press the enter key. At this point GTG will complain with the following error message:

It looks like an error has occurred. GTG0.2.9 has crashed. Please report the bug on our Launchpad page. If you have Apport installed, it will be started for you.

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/lib64/python2.7/site-packages/GTG/gtk/editor/taskview.py", line 1160, in _insert_at_cursor
  File "/usr/lib64/python2.7/site-packages/GTG/gtk/editor/taskview.py", line 947, in insert_indent
    list_stag = start_i.get_toggled_tags(False)
AttributeError: 'bool' object has no attribute 'get_toggled_tags'

If I click on "Ignore the error", it seems that I can continue working with GTG as nothing happened at all.

The reason I wrote a double hyphen is that I was trying to separate text with a sort of horizontal line.

I can reproduce this behaviour every time, even if I start from scratch, that is by removing everything in ~/.local/share/gtg and ~/.config/gtg and starting GTG as if it was just installed.

I'm happy to provide other details or run other tests if needed.

I reproduce this bug with GTG 0.2.9 but I can't reproduce it in the current development version of GTG -- it is fixed there. Closing as Fix Committed.
