I don't think I need to explain this too much... this is a feature in sphinx 
that allows numbered headings to work across multiple files.

Currently .. sectnum:: provides this functionality for rst2pdf but it is highly 
impractical for a large number of files where their structure can often change, 
as their position in the document needs to be manually specified using start 
and prefix settings.

Thanks for the bug report, and sorry it took me so long to get to it. I am not 
using sphinx at the moment, so I am not prioritizing those bugs, but I expect I 
will get to fix this not so far in the future.

version of our docs. thanks
