The following patch fixes the problem for me:

I have to admit, though, that I don't understand why the version with
`unless' results in the bug, since in the recipes I gave
org-agenda-diary-file is unbound and, indeed, when I instrument the
unpatched org--setup-calendar-bindings and step through it on calling
`calendar', the org-calendar-insert-diary-entry-key local-set-key call
is skipped as expected.  But "c" does get locally set, so if I type `c'
in the Calendar buffer, it displays the Org Agenda, and if I then type
`i' in the Calendar buffer, I now get prompted with a choice menu for
the type of diary entry, but whichever I choose, the result is the
user-error "Don't know which date to use for diary entry", evidently
because there is indeed no org-agenda-diary-file with the necessary text
properties.  So somehow the "i" binding is made even though the code
should prevent this (and does under Edebug but not when executed

With the above patch, after typing `c' in the Calendar buffer, `i' is
still unbound, as it should be, but if I changed the value of
org-agenda-diary-file from the default 'diary-file to some file, then
`i' works with Org Agenda as documented.
