Bug description

After synchronizing with trunk, I get the following error from ocamldoc:

Fatal error: exception Invalid_argument("index out of bounds")
Raised by primitive operation at file "", line 72, characters 16-28
Called from file "", line 91, characters 27-49
Called from file "", line 2310, characters 48-58
Called from file "", line 91, characters 12-15
Called from file "", line 91, characters 12-15
Called from file "", line 2332, characters 8-32
Called from file "", line 2792, characters 8-46
Called from file "", line 126, characters 6-32

The argument 'name' in the Odoc_html.html_files function is equal to "Pervasives." (with the final dot character, hence the exception).

In the f_ele function (around line 2310), we have:

name e = "Pervasives..()"
Name.simple (name e) = "()"
Name.father (name e) = "Pervasives."

So this seems to be related to the new support for custom index operators.

Hopefully fixed by commit 15801.

Seriously, the function Odoc_name.cut is really an example of code obfuscation and should be rewritten.
