Sorry, I had missed your original post. I think the solution to your  
problem is using the (undocumented) \phantomsection command from the  
hyperref package (at the very end of hyperref.sty). It does not  
insert any text, but an anchor at the current point in the PDF  
output. Thus you should write, possibly:

\addcontentsline{toc}{chapter}{\numberline{}Bibliography} % position A

For example, the following code in pdfmark.def (for dvips) or  
hpdftex.def (for pdfTeX) tells the hyperref packages redefines the  
command \@ssect (invoked by \section*, \subsection* etc.) by simply  
adding a \phantomsection immediately after the section title:

\let\H at old@ssect\@ssect
   \H at old@ssect{#1}{#2}{#3}{#4}{#5}%

The effect that an anchor is created there, allowing the table of  
contents to navigate to that section, in particular.

Below is a quotation from a message I had written to the XeTeX  
mailing list last November, together with Ross Moore's comment.

Hope this helps,
