varioref and hyperref is the problem:



\ref{sec:foo} shows this working (\pageref{sec:foo}).
\Vref{sec:foo} shows this breaking (\vref*{sec:foo}).


With babel 2005/05/21 v3.8g this breaks on the 2nd pdflatex 
(This is pdfeTeX, Version 3.141592-1.21a-2.2 (Web2C 7.5.4)) run.

! TeX capacity exceeded, sorry [input stack size=1500].
\protect ->\noexpand \protect
l.12 \Vref{sec:foo}
                    shows this breaking (\vref*{sec:foo}).

With babel 2004/11/20 v3.8d, there is no error, but the \Vref{}
capitalization does not work.
