    I can't offer anything concrete as in what to do, but I've had 
similar issues when compiling Calvin's Institutes.  However, it is still 
not fixed.  I was working on repairing it when several things happened 
in life.  So, haven't gotten back to it.    My similar problems hinged 
about the fact that not all the document seemed to be well-formed, or 
something else injected minor corruptions.  Some, for instance, missed 
closing tags on verse references, turning the remainder of the passage 
into a useless and non-functioning hyperlink.  My fix is to <eek> 
manually edit the file with vim.
