When generating documentation for Objective C, Bugzilla ignores Categories.

For example, you have the class Foo in Foo.h. The interface is:

@interface Foo: Object
- foo;

Now you have for example a Bar.h and a Bar.m file that extend the Bar functionality to Foo. The interface looks like:
@interface Foo (Bar)
- bar;

If you generate documentation using doxygen now, bar isn't documented anywhere.

I'm seeing the same behavior in the latest Doxygen (v1.7.3). All categories which don't have a space before the first parenthesis are documented correctly, but categories with (at least one) parenthesis are not. So:

// Works as expected
@interface Foo(Bar)
- bar;

// Isn't documented
@interface Foo (Bar)
- bar;
