Hm, wait, that's not quite right. The beamer trees are in a separate file specifically because I did not want to push them onto my phone.

So I'm not sure exactly what happened.

There's a link in one of my org-agenda/mobile files to the top heading of the beamer file. I did do an org-mobile-push in the morning. But I just confirmed with a quick test that mobile-push does NOT greedily scan through any org buffers and add IDs to TODOs, schedules. So the errant :PROPERTIES: block (which I assume is the source of the extra :END:) didn't come from there... but it did come from somewhere.

Ah... another dim memory... I copied this content out of a file that *is* pushed. Probably those headings acquired IDs when they were part of the other file, and I didn't delete the properties in the new file.

But I still can't reproduce it with a simple file :(  so I don't know quite what causes it, only that something screwy happened when storing a link to a heading that had already been property-ified.
