When warning about undocumented member functions, the reported line number is that of the class, not the undocumented member function.

For example, when generating docs for the following class:
/** A small man
struct miniman { // <--------- line 3
/// Here's some documentation
void doc();

    void undoc(); // <--------- line 7


I get the following warning:

/tmp/miniman.h:3: warning: Member undoc() (function) of class miniman is not documented.

The line number should be that of the undocumented member, i.e. line 7
