That's a bug in apacite. It runs \edef on the labels where it should use
\protected at edef. Near the end of the definition of \@@cite, it should be: 

       % else: hyperref-compatibility option off
       % (code dating from theapa.sty)
         \protected at edef\B at my@dummy{\csname b@\@citeb\@extra at b@citeb\endcsname}%
         \ifx\@citeP\B at my@dummy%
             \@ifauthorsequalc at de
             \@ifauthorsunequalc at de
            % define previous citation-author as current
         \protected at edef\@citeP{\csname b@\@citeb\@extra at b@citeb\endcsname}%

With this code, the accentfix option, which fixes some symptoms of this bug, is
also superfluous.
