Repro/test case

See attached ZIP file for minimal repro case or the following snippet:

/** @brief Foo */
struct Foo {
     * @brief Fun of two
     * - fun() const
     * - @ref fun() const
     * - @ref fun() const "title"
    static Foo fun(Foo a, Foo b);

    /** @brief Fun with itself */
    Foo fun() const;

It is not possible to make explicit link to Foo::fun() const with @ref. In the generated HTML docs the first (implicit) link is OK and also links to the right location, the second link is done only from foo() (and the const remains non-clickable in default font) and also improperly links to Foo::fun(Foo, Foo). The third one highlights fun() const and links to proper location, but the link title in quotes appears as "title" in default font after the link.

Tested with current Git (a31c9ff), but the issue appears for some time already. I'm currently working around this by using implicit reference, but I'd like to disable AUTOLINK_SUPPORT and have everything explicit to avoid having plain English words highlighted as links :)

Confirmed. Should be fixed in the next GIT update.
