[O] TODO + org-mobile-push vs. org-store-link

I'm using "Org-mode version 7.9 (release_7.9-34-g4ca67b @ 
/home/dlm/share/org-mode.git/lisp/)" -- just discovered some garble-age related 
to storing and inserting links in conjunction with TODO items and 

Suppose this is one of the org-agenda files that will be synced with MobileOrg.

* TODO A headline to link
** A subheading

* Links go here

When you org-mobile-push, the TODO item receives a SHA id:

* TODO A headline to link
  :ID:       5f922d66-5a46-4704-8ab4-13a711677232

Now, if I also want to link to this item (why?*), I would hit C-c l on the TODO 
headline, which tries to assign another SHA id. Then I get a mess.

* TODO A headline to link

  :ID:       331b4df1-3974-4c1b-aa67-a519af8b7b3d
:END:      ** A subheading

(I'm not sure if the ID is the same before or after C-c l.)

So we have two :END: markers and -- *worse* -- the subheading has been moved up 
to the previous line, where it is no longer a subheading.

I'm quite sure I did org-mobile-push before storing the link. I suspect 
org-store-link may not be checking sufficiently for an existing ID, and trying 
to put the ID into a place where it expects to find no :PROPERTIES: block (but 
there is one).

* Why? The file is actually a presentation for beamer export. Rather than have 
live TODO items appear in the slide drafts, I thought I would collect the TODOs 
in a :noexport:-tagged subtree, but this was after I had already made the 
exportable headings into TODOs and mobile-pushed.
