Hi all,

The documented, correct, and functional fix for this is to use the 
\phantomsection command before every \addcontentsline command. The reason is 
the hyperref package has a hard time with \addcontentsline and so the hyperref 
package offers the \phantomsection command as an official workaround.

So when you guys come up with situations where \addcontentsline produces the 
numerically right page numbers in print but goes to the wrong page when 
clicked, suspect this hyperref anomole and try the \phantomsection official
