Do you eval this in the *scratch* buffer?  If so, this is a feature:
the Lisp interaction mode in *scratch* sets up things so that
debug-on-error is non-nil, which causes every call to `error' to enter
the debugger.  Normally, `error' just aborts the current command and
displays an error message.

If you don't eval in *scratch*, please tell exactly how you do it.
