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?


Hi Jonathan,
thanks for the offer. I tried to follow your advice and I append the relevant files below (let's call them "drive.tex" and "drive.bbl"). I made the following observations:

1. when I use times (as \rmdefault) instead of courier (as \rmdefault) the error disappears (actually I am using scala sans, but I was able to reproduce the behavior with courier)
OR [!]
2. when I delete \clubpenalty=10000, the error disappears
OR [!]
3. when I delete leftmark in my custom pagestyle "habil", the error disappears

I've got no clue why this should be so.
Thanks again for your help,

%%%%%%%%%%%% begin drive.tex %%%%%%%%%%%%%
\usepackage{courier} % no error if times and \rmdefault is used

\clubpenalty=10000 % no error if this line is deleted

	\hrule height1pt \vskip\onelineskip \raggedleft \chaptitlefont ##1}
  \renewcommand{\afterchaptertitle}{\vskip\onelineskip \hrule height1pt \vskip \afterchapskip}

%% no error if '\leftmark' ist substituted by e.g. 'Ingo'
