Line 26 of the attached input file reads:
With no interesting content, but an interesting quoted double quote ".
(Yes, I wanted the output to contain a backslash followed by a double quote.)

Processing with doxygen will yield
:3932536: Error: Unexpected character `"'

Trying to escape the backslash by writing \" does not change the situation.

Confirmed. Should be fixed in the next subversion update.

The advertised way to write " is to escape both characters, i.e. \", but \" will also work, writing just " will write only " to the output.

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).
