I have two functions with similar signatures

const CTensor eig(const RTensor &A, CTensor *R, CTensor *L)
const CTensor eig(const CTensor &A, CTensor *R, CTensor *L)

that differ on two typedefs classes

typedef Tensor RTensor
typedef Tensor CTensor

Doxygen believes both functions are the same and collapses the documentation. A minimal example is attached.

This is the result for a not so minimal example
Note that other functions are also collapsed (solve, eig, etc)

This bug was previously marked ASSIGNED, which means it should be fixed in
doxygen version 1.8.3. Please verify if this is indeed the case. Reopen the
bug if you think it is not fixed and please include any additional information
that you think can be relevant.

I am seeing this defect in 1.8.5: two overloads of a function that differ only by a typedef argument are being conflated to one function in the documentation with a "warning: no matching file member found for " warning.
