Thanks Stefan,

I had read that and tried the hyper option. It returns the same results  
however :(

Oh well. So now we must conclude that hyperref does not play nice with  
apacite. Perhaps whoever is responsible for the TeX Catalog Online can  
update the reference to apacite at  
filename=apacite&action=/tools/cataloguesearch&catstring=apacite so  
that it does not say that apacite is compatible with hyperref.
