Please describe the problem:
I use an own file to define the structure of modules using multiple nested \defgroup's. In the headerfiles, I only use \addtogroup \ingroup or \weakgroup to add function definitions to the appropriate module.

The resulting module hierarchy is not correct, even in a minimal example where only one file is present:

\defgroup b B
\defgroup c C
\defgroup d D
\defgroup e E
\defgroup f F

Running doxygen on this example (latest SVN version), gives a Module-page with the following hierachy:

* A
      o B
            + C 
      o D 
* E 

both in HTML and LaTeX-output.
Obviously, E and D are misplaced, here.

Does this happen every time?

Created attachment 131514
doxyfile used to produce the bug

Sorry, I mixed up the labels. In the file, it starts with 'B', in the result with 'a'.

Is anything going to happen to this bug?
It produces the same result with the latest svn-version.

Great! This will help me a lot. I used the grouping feature quite excessively and was a bit disappointed about the result :-)

Thanks a lot for the great piece of software!
