Yes, it might be worth trying to check whether a previous version of the
bib file fixes the problem. Sometimes Better BibTeX introduces problem.

As for the documents. Unfortunately there are quite a view documents
involved. Would you recommend downloading the previous version, accept
all changes in the document, and do a diff?

I am actually also using git. But I too rarely create commits. So, that
would be searching for the needle in the haystack, I guess. I need to
get a better commit routine, like once a day.
