# Strange interaction between natbib and algorithm2e

Here's a minimal example.

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{titlesec}
\usepackage{algorithm2e}
\usepackage{natbib}
\begin{document}
\bibliographystyle{plainnat}
\begin{thebibliography}{1}
\bibitem[Bar(2011)]{bar}
Bar
\end{thebibliography}
\end{document}


This produces a heading akin to

*Bibliography

If titlesec is commented out, it fails to compile unless natbib is also commented out

If either algorithm2e or natbib are commented out, then it produces the heading

I would clearly like to see the latter. Do I need to use another pseudocode package or can this be solved?

The mind works in mysterious ways! You can solve this problem: multicolumn long table or enumeration, but package loading order escaped you today. :-) –  Alan Munn Apr 6 '11 at 3:49
@Alan: Ha! I didn't even think about changing package order. I was thinking about the algorithm my coauthor had written. Thanks. –  TH. Apr 6 '11 at 6:26

Load natbib before algorithm2e.
