Apacite has some compatibility problems with hyperref. See section 6.3
(page 39) in the apacite manual (july 1, 2004):

"... the hyperref package ... needs to redefine the citation commands
and reference list commands ... These redefinitions are incompatible
with redefinitions of the citation commands by apacite."

"An attempt to achieve this can be tried through the hyper option of
apacite. This activates some code ... that makes apacite and hyperref
work together to some extent. However, different things go wrong
depending on the order in which the two packages are loaded."
