That happens for me too, depending on where in the codebase I test.
The problem is not with my script though.

I'm pretty sure the xml  generated by doxygen is bad in some cases.
And then qhelpgenerator barfs on it.

I took a look at this problem a few days ago and found a missing end-tag in the xml.

No, I haven't reported the bug to doxygen yet because I want to provide them
with more details: something more specific than "your xml is buggy".
Although... I think a Troll may have written this code for the doxygen project...

Anyway, that's all the info I have on this issue at the moment.
