It seems to me that nobody has yet identified the true cause of your  
problem, and until this is found and fixed, the document is likely to  
be fragile at best.

As the fragments we've seen don't seem to include anything out of the  
ordinary, I think we probably need to see a lot more of the source  
material, so that the LaTeX experts on the list can see the *full*  
context where the error happens, reproduce it for themselves, and  
then track down the root cause.

Can you make a copy of the document and eliminate other material  
(perhaps everything except the bibliography) until you have a fairly  
small test case that still exhibits the same problem?
