example files to reproduce problem

When I have one doxygen project documenting some python code and generate a tagfile for it and another doxygen project that tries to reference a file of the python code via the tagfile, then a wrong link is created in the HTML output of the latter project.

In the attached small example, is documented in foo_html/foo_8py.html.
However, the link in main_html/index.html points to foo__8py.html, that is, there is an additional underscore.

The .tag file has

On our side, the Python code is the only one that creates compounds with kind "file" in tag files. Somewhere, I would guess, an underscore gets "escaped" too often.

To reproduce, first run doxygen on Doxygen_foo and then on Doxygen_main and open main_html/index.html.

With doxygen 1.8.10, this has still been working. I don't know about 1.8.11.
