 Do you have Unicode characters (or something other than basic latin)
 in the
 reference labels?  Could this be an encoding issue?

 Under the heading desperate times call for desperate measures, you
 might try
 making a copy of the .lyx files and using a plain text editor to
 globally search
 and replace the labels with something that uses only ASCII
 characters.  Then see
 if LyX does any better.

 The problem is a known bug, specific to french and solved in texlive-2011. I 
have found a work around and I'll have my docs in time. Some discussions about 
it are in the french mailing list (in french of course).
Thanks all for the help,

I had similar problems with references, which were solved by placing the 
offending character in the .bib file (usually something with an accent)  
with a \?{c}  where ? is the appropriate marker, such as ` or ' or  and 
c is the accented character, usually a, o, e, u or i.It is also 
possible that including the relevant language package (French, Czech, 
German  or whatever) in the Latex system will accomplish the same thing.

 Of course, removing the cross references fix the problem... creating a new

This looks like it might be a form of the active character problem, if
you are using French. You could try switching to refstyle under

  Of course, removing the cross references fix the problem...
  creating a new label and cross ref brings it back.
  - is this a known problem ?
  - any known way to fix this ?
  - any idea ?
 
 This looks like it might be a form of the active character problem,
 if
 you are using French. You could try switching to refstyle under
 DocumentSettingsDocument Class.


Did it. Doesn't make any difference.
Any other suggestions ? What's this active character problem about ?
It's a mess as I need this documents printed on monday !
