When parsed by doxygen, this is treated as a definition of function "some_template< int >" returning "int coreVectors[]".

If there is no >extern "C"<, then the output is correct. It is also correct if there is no template used in initializer. If unified initialization is not used (so there's a "=" between "[]" and "{") the output is correct.

If you reverse the order of elements in the array (template is not the first item), then the coreVectors[] is detected as a variable (but the values are not included in the documentation), and there also appears an undocumented entry for "some_template< int > (0)" as a function.

The use case that lead me to this problem is using C++-style cast - like reinterpret_cast<>() - in initializer of array.

Confirmed. Should be fixed in the next GIT update.
