I haven't tried bbdb-3.0 yet - I'm still on "bbdb-2.36 devo",
so I can't help with 3.0 problems. But if you want to debug
it a bit, then the following method should give you some idea
of what's going wrong.

Switch to the *scratch* buffer and evaluate the following:

(setq debug-on-error t)
(setq date '(6 13 2011))   ; you can set the date to different things
                           ; in order to pick up different anniversaries etc.

I hope this gives you a backtrace but it may be that the error is caught
(in order to produce the "Bad diary sexp at ..." message) and I'm not
sure whether a backtrace is produced in this case, but it's still worth
trying I think.  In any case, check the *Messages* buffer as well.
