This is because the commands \( and \) are fragile: you need to
precede them by \protect inside \section, and probably also \caption,
and the like.
That's why I'm not using them myself (I'm sticking to $$). Another
possible reason is prolonged use of plain TeX before learning LaTeX.
That said, I'm surprised: I thought most current LaTeX 2e commands had
gradually been made solid by the LaTeX 3 team.
