The ODT exporter is 7.8.11 version.  (The presence of org-lparse says it
is a 7.8 version)

You are having a old version of Emacs and hence org-odt.el.  Try
upgrading it to emacs-24.3 (or whatever is the newest stable version) or
the latest Org-7.8.X version.


I see no correspondence between the example Org file and the problem
reported.  Problematic path gets triggered only if there are source
blocks.  The Org file has no source block.  Definitely there is
something amiss at your side.


Org-7.8.11 is more or less on life-support.  Issues with Org-8.0 will be
more interesting.  Make sure to use GNU ELPA package and isolate
the issue further.

Start Emacs *normally*.  (Otherwise the exporter used will be the old

*After* export, try 

    M-x org-version RET

    M-x locate-library RET org-compat RET

and ensure that the right version of Org is picked up.

The problem comes from one of the shell blocks (either babel execution
or source block coloration.)
