I tried to stretch this a bit further and wanted to grasp to natbib
style which prints more data (like URL and DOI) for instance.
Unfortunately this style is currently stumbling about four longish
author fields.  However, IMHO this problem is caused by some broken
natbib style which behaves *differently* than it is described here:


According to this the commands \cite, \citep and \citet should use
*shortcuts* of the authors field and only the stared versions \cite*,
\citep* and \citet* use all authors.  In contrast to this documentation
I would like you to have a look at the files I dropped at


Please try to run it through

   pdflatex adebian; bibtex adebian; pdflatex adebian.tex ; pdflatex adebian.tex

and try to find out why the marker in the text is not abbreviated.  I
bet if we would get this working the overlongish author fields are no
problem any more.

Any help is welcome
