I think I have come across a bug in how Doxygen handles forward
declarations of class templates. Suppose that I have the following file:

namespace N
template class C;

/** \brief C /
template class C
* \brief method */
void method() {}
} // end namespace N

When I process it with Doxygen 1.8.2, the generated class list
("annotated.html") contains not only the N::C class template, but also a
spurious entry "C" outside any namespace. The latter disappears if I
remove the forward declaration of C.

The same problem occurs if a forward declaration of a class template is
found in a different source file than its definition, and each such
declaration produces a new spurious entry in the class list.

Confirmed. Should be fixed in the next subversion update.
