Thanks for the report.
I was able to locate a bug in doxygen_xml2qbk resulting in generation of
invalid number of columns in some tables.
The tables were not generated properly for member functions without the
return description.
It's now fixed in the develop branch.

Unfortunately there is similar problem related with the reference matrix:

It's generated from quickref.xml somehow, automatically.
It seems that the first occurence of a problem is inside the table
describing Core functionalities.
For now I don't have an Idea how this should be fixed. I'll try to find
a way.
Of course any help is appreciated.
