Maybe it's a bug in refer?  A number of other things also don't
work as I would want them to, for example "@.r" reverses only
the names of the first author, not the others.

As a quick workaround for "et al." in the labels, you might
try something like the following:

  label "(A1?(A1.n(A3?' et al.':A2&' & 'A2.n)):Q)', '(D.y|D)"

This doesn't consider uniqueness of the labels, however --
it's up to you to make sure that the labels are not ambiguous.
