The standard style seminar.cls, with the inlinebib.sty package, also
adds an asterisk before the reference list.  In this case, it results
from the combination of inlinebib.sty's

   {\uppercase{\bibname}}{\uppercase{\bibname}}}\bibc at mment
   \def\newblock{\hskip .11em plus.33em minus.07em}%

with seminar.cls not understanding that "\chapter*" means an
un-numbered chapter, and treating it like "\chapter{*}".  Changing the
"\chapter*" to a "\chapter", in inlinebib.sty, makes the problem go

I guess you've got some similar incidence of the document class not
understanding what a bibliography-related package is saying.
