The html files for directories (dir_$md5encode.html) apparently use the full path name to generate the md5 key. With files under revision control and checked out by various users in different directories, the generated file names change per user.

Although I haven't tried the fix I'm proposing, I suspect that the problem can be corrected by using the existing Doxygen feature that finds the minimum file suffix that makes the name unique. Feeding this minimally unique file name to the md5encode routine should produce stable dir_* file names.

I observed the problem on version 1.7.3, but looked at the code for the latest version (1.7.6) and it seems it has the same problem.

My config file has:

STRIP_FROM_PATH = ../src ../localLib

This keeps the relative directory structure of the documented code visible to the user.

Hi John,

You observation is correct. I'll make doxygen ignore the common prefix shared by all directories.

This is more stable than the mimimum path to make the directory name unique, as this will change as soon as a new directory is added with the same name as one that was previously unique.
