The example from bug_488125 goes in version 1.8.4 into an endless loop

When looking at the source code the problem comes from the > sign in the comment.

Further investigations lead to the fact that version is still OK, SVN version 844 is OK too. The problem occurs for the first time in SVN version 846

Confirmed. Should be fixed in the next GIT update.

I also observed this same problem while using, for example:

\retval "Value > 0" - Indicates success.

Doxygen halted indefinitely on the output line:
"Generating group documentation...", though the function that was being documented was in a group, so that is a probably explanation for the lockup point.

Sorry, should also note that if you remove the quotes, the problem goes away, but the output I desired is also unavailable when I do that.

This bug has already been set to ASSIGNED, meaning that a fix is available in the git repositoty.
Please test it against the version as it is currently in git and otherwise add a self-contained example (source+config file in a zip or tar) if possible.

This bug was previously marked ASSIGNED, which means it should be fixed in
doxygen version 1.8.5. 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.
