I had a quick look in the source code and it looks like that the change on September 21, 2016 for bug_771152 is causing the problem.
The line:
if (al->refQualifier!=RefQualifierNone)
should probably read:
if (a1!=0 && al->refQualifier!=RefQualifierNone)
See also line 612 in the same file.

Can you confirm this?

a1 should read al in the above:

Thanks Albert! That change worked for me with breathe and also with gyoto [1] where I found a similar problem.

This bug was previously marked ASSIGNED, which means it should be fixed in
doxygen version 1.8.14. 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).
