It's probably because of a bad customization. To make sure,
run with a minimal .emacs that just loads org and *none*
of your customizations, something as simple as the following
(with obvious adjustments for your setup):

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
;;; -*- mode: emacs-lisp -*-
;;; constant part
(add-to-list 'load-path (expand-file-name "~/src/emacs/org/org-mode/lisp"))
(add-to-list 'auto-mode-alist '("\\.\\(org\\|org_archive\\|txt\\)$" . org-mode))
(require 'org-install)

(setq debug-on-error t)
(setq debug-on-quit t)
(setq eval-expression-print-length nil)
(setq eval-expression-print-level nil)

(global-set-key "\C-cl" 'org-store-link)
(global-set-key "\C-ca" 'org-agenda)
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

Save this in your home directory as minimal.org.el and start emacs

	emacs -q -l ~/minimal.org.el

and then do C-c a a - do you get the error? Probably not.

The second thing you should do (this in your full emacs session,
where you get the error) is

M-x toggle-debug-on-error RET

and then C-c a a to trigger the error - but now it will produce a
backtrace which should tell you where the error occurred.  If you can't
figure it out, post the backtrace to the list.
