a little more information in case it is useful:

in emacs25 -Q with recent maint, this code fails to export; it errors
if there is an org-id link anywhere in the tree.

  (org-export-as 'html 'subtree nil 'body-only nil)

the same bug arises with ascii export.

it seems like a bug that a link should make the export fail.  the link
is to another file not being exported.  note also that this is a
subtree export with body only.

[btw, the docstring says "When optional argument BODY-ONLY is non-nil,
only return body
code, without surrounding template."  it does not way what template
means.  perhaps the docstring could say?]

with my regular .emacs instead of -Q, it does not error but returns an
empty string.  this made debugging confusing.

it scrolls the buffer slightly for unknown reasons.  this could
perhaps be called a minor bug.

random testcase.  you can run using m-: on the top line.
