I'm using natbib, and a .bst file generated by me with latex makebst. This .bst only puts et al. if citation has more than three authors.

Citation \cite{Kim2010}

However, I'm getting this result:

Citation KIM (SON e JEONG)

and if I comment the second line (and stop using natbib), I get this:

Citation [KIM, SON e JEONG, 2010]

I don't know why natbib is truncating the citation.
Anyone could help me?

My files:

author = {KIM, Youngdo and SON, Seung-Woo and JEONG, Hawoong},
doi = {10.1103/PhysRevE.81.016103},
issn = {1539-3755},
journal = {Physical Review E},
number = {1},
pages = {1--9},
title = {{Finding communities in directed networks}},
url = {http://link.aps.org/doi/10.1103/PhysRevE.81.016103},
volume = {81},
year = {2010}

I discovered that this happen only with commands \cite and \citet. When using \citep the output is normal.

Citation (KIM, SON e JEONG 2010)

It appears that something went wrong when you created the custom bibliography style file tesetres.bst. Not having access to the log file, it's nearly hopeless to try to parse the actual .bst file to find out what's going on. Your best bet may be to rerun the makebst utility from scratch.

I've tried that already, 5 times. –  Ze Grisi Sep 12 '12 at 17:50
This is the log file: vps.fmvz.usp.br/~grisi/makebst.log –  Ze Grisi Sep 12 '12 at 18:00
@ZeGrisi - Thanks for providing this additional link. The log file shows -- see question <<AUTHOR--YEAR SUPPORT SYSTEM (if author-year citations) -- that you've chosen to optimize the .bst file for use with the apalike citation package. However, according to the MWE you posted, you actually use the natbib package. Do the problems you report persist if you rerun makebst with optimization set for the natbib package? –  Mico Sep 12 '12 at 20:24
I found a post in another forum suggesting this. Aaaaand it works!!! However, I was forgetting to re-run bibtex, so I was stuck until now. Thank you! –  Ze Grisi Sep 14 '12 at 2:30
