If #include blah
(or #if or any C-preprocessor command ) is parsed by doxygen not inside a \code ... \endcode than the # is interpreted as forcing an explicit link to include.
In 1.6.3 this resulted in a
'Warning: explicit link request to 'include' could not be resolved' warning.
In 1.7.2 there is no warning, and include with the # stripped is added to the output documentation.

If warnings are used for quality-control, this absence is unacceptable. Workaround is to stay on 1.6.3
