To summarise the previous post (i.e. from the thread I started for this
bug), all you have to do is simply include the following on any slide
for which you want frame breaks:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
* A long "frame" with breaks
:BEAMER_opt: allowframebreaks,label=
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

Method 0 is, in principle, desirable, but I actually find that beamer
does a really nice job on automatic frame breaks in most cases and it
makes writing some types of presentations much easier!  An example, from
my own usage, is the solution to some example problem when teaching.  I
can simply write down all the steps, e.g. as an enumerated list, and let
beamer worry about the breaks.  Using automatic frame breaks, for me, is
just the obvious extension of org (or LaTeX): let me worry about the
content and let the system worry about the formatting!
