dear all,
i am running into a weird problem for lyx dvi output.
my working platform:
vistas home premium
lyx 1.6.5 + texlive 2009 + jabref

error messages are like below:

Paragraph ended before \...@paragraph was complete.
 \contentsline {paragraph}{\par
                                    \vfil \penalty -...@m {}}{27}
I suspect you've forgotten a `}', causing me to apply this
control sequence to too much text. How can we recover?
My plan is to forget the whole thing and hope for the best.
Extra }, or forgotten \endgroup.
  ...e {paragraph}{\par \vfil \penalty -...@m {}}
I've deleted a group-closing symbol because it seems to be
spurious, as in `$x}$'. But perhaps the } is legitimate and
you forgot something else, as in `\hbox{$x}'. In such cases
the way to recover is to insert both the forgotten and the
deleted material, e.g., by typing `I$}'.
the error area is my ""name""!
i checked LaTeX source, everything looks fine. my name is keyed in with no fancy font or setting. plain plain standard environment. and it can be viewed dozen times before till now. i can't comprehend the problem. so, i turn to you for help... is there anyone can advise me where the actual problem is?


Quick hack: If you're using a BibTeX blbliography, try making a copy of the document and deleting the bibliography from the copy. If it compiles (with lots of [?] references), the problem is probably in the .bib file.

More time-consuming: Try a bisection search. Cut out the second half of the document and try to compile. If the bug persists, restore the second half and cut out half of the first half, ad nauseum.
