Automatic Constructor Summary

I've noticed the following behavior when using the AutoDocumentConstructors property set to true.

If a constructor has an empty summary tag


the doc builder adds a constructor summary on the constructor page, but not on the class members page.

If I remove the empty summary tag, the doc builder now adds the constructor summary on the class members page also, unless the class has more than one constructor; in those cases, it omits the summaries on the class members page.

Having the auto summary is nice. Is there a way to make it work in both places for all classes?

I found the problem.  The constructor elements are nested within another element when there are overloads.  I've fixed it for the next release.
