Digging into the code I finally was able to nail the problem: the offending citation being of type "t=inproceedings" was missing the "title" item. Then I observe a call with #1 in bibgetvart empty, somehow leading to a missing \endcsname error message.

Obviously earlier this wasn't a problem but now is. I guess because the code changed since my previous work on the project.
