javadoc mishandles generation of @see tag with references to a statically imported nested type

      Description

      In the type javax.sound.sampled.spi.AudioFileWriter in the java.desktop module, there is an @see reference

          @see #isFileTypeSupported(Type, AudioInputStream)

      where "Type" is the statically imported nested type

          import static javax.sound.sampled.AudioFileFormat.Type;

      While there are many uses of "Type" in the file in question, when javadoc is run over AudioFileWriter, the following warning is produced:

      jdk/src/java.desktop/share/classes/javax/sound/sampled /spi/AudioFileWriter.java:127: warning - Tag @see: can't find isFileTypeSupported(Type, AudioInputStream) in javax.sound.sampled.spi.AudioFileWriter

      Changing the @see reference to

          @see #isFileTypeSupported(AudioFileFormat.Type, AudioInputStream)

      resolve the problem. Therefore, it seems that javadoc is not properly handling the statically imported in this situation since other occurrences of Type do *not* have to be (partially) qualified.
