Yes, and this time it's more clear and easier to fix :-)

The usage of fd:field for ID implies the submit of request parameter ID 
that's read. As there is no request param sent when using 
styling="output" (only text is generated, no inputs) the new value is 
'null'. I use the ID stuff myself really often, but have done it always 
using fd:output, as this does not expect a request param and the ID is

Additionally I have added direction="save" to my ID fields, so that they 
can not even overwritten in flowscript. On the beans themselves I do not 
even have a setter for id, as only the database sets the id and nobody 
should manipulate them.
