So when I start emacs -q, everything works as expected. 
So the culprit must be in my init file somewhere. 

However, I started (with my init file enabled) to debug the function
add-change-log-entry, which reads like

(defun add-change-log-entry (&optional whoami file-name other-window new-entry
  (interactive (list current-prefix-arg

So the debugger jumps to current-prefix-arg which is nil, and then
execute prompt-for-change-log-name, which he shouldn't.

I am really puzzled by this.
