doxygen configuration

There are nested namespaces construction as follows (it is synthetic sample
prepared on real case), dox_crash.cpp:

namespace n2
class ClassName
typedef A adapter_type;

namespace n1
namespace n2
class ClassName :
public ::n2::ClassName

struct X
typedef int abstract_adapter_type;

int main(void)
n1::n2::ClassName a;

return 0;


It is compillable.

When the doxygen is used to document this file (see attached configuration), it
stay in phase "Computing class inheritance relations..." and it is allocating
memory up to around 3GiB, than crashes.

If the n1::n2::ClassName is changed to different name, it works fine.

Confirmed. Should be fixed in the next subversion update.

This bug was previously marked ASSIGNED, which means it should be fixed in
doxygen version 1.6.2. Please verify if this is indeed the case and reopen the
bug if you think it is not fixed (include any additional information that you
think can be relevant).
