Repro/test case

See attached ZIP file for minimal repro case. I disabled all output, as it is not needed to reproduce this. Generate the tagfile and process it using the following commands:

doxygen Doxyfile.original
doxygen Doxyfile.current

The first command generates original.tag file, the second parses it and outputs the following warning:

<unknown>:1: warning: Member member() (function) of class Foo< int > is not documented.

Other than that the generated documentation (if enabled) would be generated okay, with all crosslinks. See current.h file -- the issue appears only when subclassing from template, when changing the line to struct Bar: Foo {};, the warning disappears (and the generated documentation would still be okay).

Tested with current Git (a31c9ff), this issue appeared "since forever" (I don't know when I first came around this warning, but I think it was present in 1.7 already). I'm currently working around this by running doxygen | grep -v "<unknown>", but it's annoying :)

Confirmed. Should be fixed in the next GIT update.

This bug was previously marked ASSIGNED, which means it should be fixed in
doxygen version 1.8.9. 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 (preferrably in the form of a self-contained example).
