Subject: [boost] QuickBook question

I am working one some quickbook docs and they start out like this:

> [library The Boost Algorithm Library
> [quickbook 1.5]
> [id algorithm]
> [dirname algorithm]
> [purpose Library of useful algorithms]
> [category algorithms]
> [authors [Clow, Marshall]]
> [copyright 2010 Marshall Clow]
> [source-mode c++]
> [license
> Distributed under the Boost Software License, Version 1.0.

> ]

Later (in the same file), I want to drop a link.
So, I write:
> [link algorithm.all.none_of_if none_of_if1]

(where all is a section, and none_of_if is a heading in that section)

but this doesn't work!
Some investigation shows that
> [link the_boost_algorithm_library.all.none_of_if none_of_if2]

does work - even though the documentation says that the first element in the link is the document id, not the document title.

Am I misunderstanding something?
