Sounds a bit like a bug OR a package clash, so, you can do one of three
things:

1) post a minimal exmaple;
2) compare a file that dosn't ahve the prolem with one that does to see
which command is causng the problem.
3) contact the author of beamer (in my experience he's very helpful);

I would suggest you do 2 followed by 3 if the result of 2 is clear to you.
Otherwise, fall back on 1.

Cordialmente,  Philip G. Ratcliffe
