For me org version 7.9.3f (came with emacs 24.3) a source block without
language also fails with ┬░Source block missing language specification"
as soon as the source block isn't empty -- on 8.3.1 it also fails on
empty source blocks, too.

Afaik only begin_example and end_example don't need a language

Note: I get fooled by the language specification regularly; either I
forget to specify the language on the begin_src line (where I think it
is Ok to get an error -- I might want to have syntax highlighting or
even get the code executed)  or I put the language on the end_src line,
too, which imho should be ignored by the exporter :)

Do you have a ~/.emacs or ~/_emacs.el file?  See
for the details of emacs initialization.
