Do you have an index? It could be that you have an old index file pointing  
to page 1039, which doesn't exist in your newer version of the document.  
Or it could be the index in a dtx-file pointing where hyperref don't see  
the difference between line numbers and page numbers (unless you instruct  
it to).
