When the class defines a method that throws an exception, but not document it with @throws or @exception, Javadoc attempts to create a throws reference. This is an excellent feature.
But it also creates a redundant 'blank' reference below the earlier said one. This should be removed.

public class test
public void doNothing () throws myException
class myException extends Exception
Use merlin-rc1, and do
javadoc -private test.java
