I think you wanted (timeclock-modeline-display 1) there, but that's
not the cause of your problem.

Aha! I get this error if I evaluate (require 'timeclock) in a
calendar buffer. I think this is due to a bug in the function
timeclock-modeline-display (which your backtrace shows is being
called via customize). It assumes that mode-line-format is a list,
when it need not be. In a calendar buffer, it's a string. I'll see
about fixing it in the CVS. In the meantime, err, try to not to use
it in a calendar buffer...?! :(
