Lucida-Bright is most certainly not encoded with T1 throughout
the entire font used for math-symbols.

In fact, when using Lucida you need to specify the
encoding as an option to the package.
All of these are valid:


In loading  lucidabr.sty  the encoding value:  LY1, T1 or OT1
causes math-accents to be handled slightly differently.

Presumably you should match the option to the \fontenc .
