Archive with two files: very simple header file and the doxygen file

Doxygen has an option LATEX_SOURCE_CODE, if it is turned on, source code is included in the latex output; otherwise, sources aren't included, but resulting pdf file contains dead links, right after detailed description:

Definition in file tn_mutex.h

Where tn_mutex.h is a dead link.


I've attached the archive with two files: very simple header file and the doxygen file.

Steps to reproduce the problem:

  • download and unpack archive in some folder, cd to it
  • execute the following commands:
    $ cd <folder_where_archive_unpacked>
    $ doxygen test_doxyfile
    $ cd output/latex
    $ make
  • open refman.pdf file
  • look at the latest page, latest line: "Definition in file test.h", where "test.h" is a dead link (a link that actually brings me at the top of the document)
