I'm not sure if this helps, but I have a dim recollection of trouble with Doxygen and Boost when I had code with a lot of separate
definitions and declarations. Is the problem that Doxygen is seeing the declaration, and finding no Doxygen-syntax comments, ticks
it off as 'done'? When Doxygen reaches the definitions and the Doxygen-syntax comments, it or the later Boost processing ignores
them. I have a dim recollection that I repeated the Doxygen-syntax comments in both places. You could try this quickly?
