counsel-org-tag fails with inherited tags: "Tag alignment failed" #1896

Given the following org-mode file with org-use-tag-inheritance:

* Test1                                                                 :foo:
** Test2

Putting point on the Test2 headline and invoking counsel-org-tag, it shows "(foo)" as the previous tag for this headline. Trying to add a new tag subsequently fails with "Tag alignment failed", because counsel-org-change-tags doesn't find the regex for ":foo:" on the current line.

It works fine without inherited tags.

This is probably due to a change in Org mode version 9.2:

Function org-get-tags used to return local tags to the current headline. It now returns all the inherited tags in addition to the local tags. In order to get the old behaviour back, you can use:

(org-get-tags nil t)

counsel: Commit 201c5d7
Emacs: GNU Emacs 26.1
Org: Org mode version 9.2 (9.2-elpaplus @ /somewhere/elpa/org-plus-contrib-20181230/)
