Created attachment 189223
Test file explaining the problem

The brief description is misplaced in he man page output using version 1.7.4.

With the attached header the generated man pages are displayed as:

test.h -

   Test file.

Test -

   Test class.

test_s -

   Test struct.

Using an older version (1.4.7) the generated man pages are correct:

test.h - Test file.

Test - Test class.

test_s - Test struct.

Please restore the older correct output.
