minimal example that generates broken qhp

If you have a markdown main page file, with anchor #mainpage, which has the same title as the PROJECT_NAME, using sections or subpages on that main page will break the QHP file - one too many "" closing tags is placed in the file, making it corrupt.

  <section title="My Project" ref="index.html">
    <section title="Table of Contents " ref="index.html#toc" />
    <section title="Sub-page" ref="mysubpage.html">
      <section title="Intro " ref="mysubpage.html#subintro" />

The page itself is collapsed in the QHP toc (there's no duplicate reference to index.html, as discussed in # 612854).

After changing the label of the main page to something that doesn't match the PROJECT_NAME setting (e.g. "My Project Mainpage"), the generated QHP file is correct:

  <section title="My Project" ref="index.html">
    <section title="My Project Mainpage" ref="index.html">
      <section title="Table of Contents " ref="index.html#toc" />
      <section title="Sub-page" ref="mysubpage.html">
        <section title="Intro " ref="mysubpage.html#subintro" />

Note how the mainpage reference is now not collapsed into the main index.html reference; instead you have the duplicate reference (again, bug # 612854 also mentions this).

If the main page has no sections (e.g. "\ref" instead of "\subpage", no headings with anchor definitions as "{#anchor}"), the output is also correct.

This might also be related to bug # 558361.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Create a project with a markdown file as main page, set GENERATE_QHP = Yes, PROJECT_NAME to "My Project".
  2. Make the first header the same as the PROJECT_NAME setting, add anchor definition {#mainpage} (i.e. "# My Project {#mainpage}"
  3. Add a section to the main page (e.g. "# Introduction {#intro}") or use the "\subpage" command on the main page.
  4. Generate the documentation

Attached is a minimal example to demonstrate the issue.
