Running Doxygen (version doesn't matter) on the following snippet:

@brief A class

See @ref A::A() constructor for details.
class A {
    /** @brief Constructor with the details */

Produces the following warning:

a.cpp:2: warning: unable to resolve reference to `A::A() const' for \ref command

(Yes, it may seem like a really bad improbable corner case case but it really occurred to me in practice a few times.) Currently I'm working around this by providing explicit link text in "", but it would be nice if I wouldn't need to. Suggested solution could be to match const only if it is a complete word and not a prefix.

Thanks a lot!
