Problem: As far as I know, a BibTeX key can be a pure number or a string
starting with a number. In doxygen, however, \cite rejects a BibTeX key
if it starts with a number.

Possible solution: In commentscan.l, define CITESCHAR as
[a-z_A-Z0-9\x80-\xFF] instead of [a-z_A-Z\x80-\xFF].

Note: A related bug (702584) has already been fixed but the problem
described here still remains.

This bug was previously marked ASSIGNED, which means it should be fixed in
doxygen version 1.8.11. 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 (preferably in the form of a self-contained example).
