* [babel] Error when exporting a trivial org file to HTML: Wrong type argument: stringp, (results . "")

Here is what's in my org file:

------------------------8<--------
#+title:   My org file
#+babel: :session *R-babel* :tangle yes

* The problem
** The code
This is going to fail on export:

#+source: test_code
#+BEGIN_SRC R :results output silent :exports none :var foo
  bar <- foo
#+END_SRC

Why does this fail?
#+call: test_code(foo=200)
#+results: test_code(foo=200)
------------------------8<--------

Simple, right?  Yet, when I try to do org-export-as-html, I get:

executing R code block (test_code)...
result is ""
""
executing Emacs-Lisp code block...

(results (quote ""))

Code block produced no output.
org-babel-exp-code: Wrong type argument: stringp, (results . "")

This happens with the latest org-mode from trunk, as well as my
few-months-old version.  What's going on?

Hi Leo,

On my system with the latest Org-mode I get the following slightly more
helpful error message.

  variable "foo" must be assigned a default value

Please add a default value to the foo variable for export and evaluation
of the code block to work.

I changed the line to #+BEGIN_SRC R :results output silent :exports
none :var foo=0, but it gives me the same error as before.  Running on
the old-ish version of org (from January, commit
8be17c8c62a8fb402a2ebf1c963a4e9f8f5dec53).

I'd recommend updating to the most recent version in which the header
arguments you mention above work for me.

Eric, I pulled the latest org-mode and that got me past the trivial
error I described, however, I've run into other ones (I'm still
bisecting my original large org file to come up with concise example).
 There is another error: if I have a hyperlink anywhere in my org
file, the html export fails with

org-translate-link: Args out of range: 0, 4

Here's the exact example; any comments?:
------------------------8<--------
#+title:   My org file
#+babel: :session *R-babel* :tangle yes

* The problem
here's a hyperlink: [[http://google.com]]

** The code
This is going to fail on export:

#+source: test_code
#+BEGIN_SRC R :results output silent :exports none :var foo
 bar <- foo
#+END_SRC

Why does this fail?
#+call: test_code(foo=200)
#+results: test_code(foo=200)
------------------------8<--------

Hi Leo,

I can't reproduce your problem.  After adding a value "=0" to your foo
variable your example below exports for me without problem.

Maybe the issue has something to do with your config, in which case
starting Emacs with -Q and trying to reproduce the problem could help.
