Hi Richard,

Thanks for the reply!  I have 9.0.3.  (Bit embarrassed I omitted that
detail, sigh.)

So the documentation says PROPERTIES can be after a "planning line",
shich seems to be DEADLINE: or SCHEDULED: but not necessarily CLOSED:.

I attempted to validate this, both by evaulating (org-id-get) on the
spot and by using C-c l (which was what caused the problem to begin
with; it added a second PROPERTIES block, as I have
org-id-link-to-org-use-id set to 'create-if-interactive).  Now somehow I
cannot duplicate the problem.  So I don't know what the heck happened --
I know it DID happen -- but it's possible this is a PEBKAC issue anyhow.

I cannot make it misbehave with either SCHEDULED or CLOSED in my testing

- John
