Anybody have any idea why microtype chokes on bib references with  
special chars (e.g., {\"o}) in them.  The bbl is generated by  
apacite, and everything is fine as long as microtype is not evoked.  
Here is the console error (which repeats about 5 times before  

! Argument of \MT at split@name has an extra }.
<inserted text>
l.152 ...her criminal offenders \cite{LalHarRic01}
                                                   . Psychopathic  
offenders a...

Runaway argument?
\@nil \MT at exp@one at n \MT at find@file \MT at family \ifx \MT at familyalias  
\@empty \ETC.
! Paragraph ended before \MT at split@name was complete.
<to be read again>

However, after (s)kipping all the errors, the compiled document is fine.
