I have run into a problem in biblatex-apa that has previously been discussed here: citing -- within the same parentheses -- multiple author groups that abbreviate to the same (Smith et al.), yet actually refer to different groups and different years. Here's my demonstration of this issue:
Question 1: Is this fix actually correct (as per APA style)? Unfortunately, I cannot find any other reference to this problem online. I believe that moewe's fix nails it. But does it?
Question 2: Has anyone used this fix in large documents (without running into any other errors that such an interference with the package might cause)?
Question 3: I am wondering whether Philip Kime (plk) has ever implemented an official (APA compliant) solution to this problem!?
I know this is a somewhat bulky and complicated issue, but any help would be greatly appreciated!
