Files for reproducing the bug

In the example below, doxygen omits the documentation of
all class members of class B. It correctly includes the documentation, if

  1. either a space is inserted between the two right double brackets
    of type definition StrangeType; or
  2. the (single) member of class A is commented out.

Thus, the parser somehow get's confused by multiple angle brackets.
Note that the two consecutive right angle brackets here are allowed
according to C++11. The dependence on the unrelated definition
of class A is strange, anyway.

//! \file myclass.h

#pragma once

// -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
// Class A
//! \brief First class.
// -----------------------------------------------------------------------------

class A
static const size_t LargeValue = ~static_cast<size_t>(0);

// -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
// Class B
//! \brief Second class.
// -----------------------------------------------------------------------------

class B
//! Template type with double right angle brackets.
typedef TemplateType1<TemplateType2<T, U>> StrangeType;

//! Member that doxygen refuses to document.

//! Member that doxygen refuses to document.
