### natbib | Runaway Argument caused by Citation

Hello,

I'm trying to use a bibliography in a separate bib file without much luck. To test things out, there's only one entry in MyBib.bib right now, so the whole file only contains the following:
@article{Ref1,title = "A new semi-active suspension control strategy through LPV technique",journal = "Control Engineering Practice",volume = "16",number = "12",pages = "1519 - 1534",year = "2008",note = "",issn = "0967-0661",doi = "10.1016/j.conengprac.2008.05.002",url = "http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0967066108000853",author = "C. Poussot-Vassal and O. Sename and L. Dugard and P. GÃ¡spÃ¡r and Z. SzabÃ³ and J. Bokor",keywords = "Semi-active suspension",keywords = "Linear parameter varying (LPV)",keywords = "Engineering",keywords = "Linear matrix inequality (LMI)"}

My complete document is divided into several .tex files included with \include. My main file looks like this
\documentclass[a4paper,11pt]{report}\usepackage[ireport]{KTHEEtitlepage}\usepackage{graphics}\usepackage{graphicx}\usepackage{amsmath}\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}\usepackage[english]{babel}\usepackage{vmargin}\usepackage[table]{xcolor}\usepackage{breqn}\usepackage[square,numbers]{natbib}\usepackage[ireport]{KTHEEtitlepage}\usepackage{nomencl}\usepackage{mathtools}\usepackage{verbatim} \usepackage{subfig}\usepackage{cite}\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}%\usepackage{natbib} \mathtoolsset{showonlyrefs} % number referenced equation only\makenomenclature\setmarginsrb{30mm}{5mm}{30mm}{20mm}{25mm}{5mm}{20mm}{10mm} \begin{document} \ititle{Title}\isubtitle{subtitle}\iauthor{Author}\idate{2012}\irefnr{AA-AA-AA 0000:000}\iaddress{School}\makeititle \include{Abstract/Abstract}\printnomenclature\tableofcontents \include{subdocument/subdocument} \nocite{*}\bibliographystyle{splncs03}\bibliography{MyBib}\end{document}

The subdocument looks like this:
\chapter{SubDocument}I would like to cite this reference \cite{Ref1}.

When I run latex I get the error message:
(./subdocument/subdocument.texChapter 1.)Runaway argument?]{Ref1} . \ETC.! File ended while scanning use of \@citex.<inserted text>                  \par l.46 \include{subdocument/subdocument} ? ! Emergency stop.<inserted text>                  \par l.46 \include{subdocument/subdocument}

I have no idea what's going on here. Does anyone know what is going on here? I'm using aquamacs with TexLive 2011. Could my dist be broken perhaps?

Reason: Longer passages of source code are tagged as code block, not as in-line code.
