AFAIU, the last expression fails because
(my:org-get-clocked-in-headline) returns nil at empty headlines. This
prevents the whole process from properly clocking out.
I fixed it on master; `org-get-heading' now always returns a string.
If you're using stable release, you may want to use
(or (org-no-properties (org-get-heading 'no-tags 'no-todo)) "")
in `my:org-get-clocked-in-headline' instead.
