We're using doxygen on a commercial project. I too have encountered
massive problems. In particular, the issues are:

* It sometimes segfaults.
* Sometimes, errors or warnings are reported without file/line number
  information (<unknown>:-1: Warning: ...).
* There are problems with namespace lookup (many unjustified
  ``no matching class member'' warnings.
* LaTeX seems to have problems compiling the generated source.
  (``string pool overflow'')
  Note that this can be fixed by ``enlarging'' LaTeX.
* Even if the LaTeX code compiles, there are still multiply defined
* Sometimes, the generated LaTeX *does not* compile (with rather
  inexplicable errors).

The problems were with version 1.2.17.

Personally, I prefer hand-written documentation in favour of
automatically generated docs. You get much cleaner and better
structured documents with basically the same, if not less, effort.
