      Description

      I noticed that running javadoc on a set of source files,
      which included inherited javadoc from files outside of that set,
      silently failed if the referenced classes were available as
      class files with newer timestamps than the source files.

      But... the .class files don't contain vital information like
      @return that is needed in the subclass.

      The generated javadoc has silent missing information. No warning is issued.
