Hi Marco,

thank you for your answer.

This is a good workaround.  I've been doing something else, which is
simply to bind the keys directly (that is not using `[remap ...]') in
`org-mode-map'.  This way the remappings done by `visual-line-mode' find
nothing to remap, and things work as expected.  However, while I'm safe
with this approach in my local settings, because I know I haven't changed
the default bindings for these commands, I don't know how good this
would be as a general solution for Org.

Anyway, it would be nice if this worked out-of-the-box, this can be
baffling behavior, especially for newer users.  But I'm not sure what to
suggest here.
