org-habit.el: better error handling required

Attached is the patch which catch this error and throws meaningful

* lisp/org-habit.el (org-habit-parse-todo): Find sr-days only if
scheduled-repeat is non nil.  Use 4th element of the list returned
by (org-heading-components) as habit-entry.  Modify the error
message to be more meaningful.
