XML Doc comment generation adding empty garbage

description

Given the latest 3.1.2 builds, the XML Documentation generated by the F# compiler is adding numerous extra "empty" entries, such as:
<doc>
<assembly><name>FSharp.Core</name></assembly>
<members>
<member name="">

</member>
<member name="">

</member>
<member name="">

</member>
<member name="">

</member>
<member name="">

</member>
<member name="">

</member>
<member name="T:Microsoft.BuildSettings.BuildDetails">

</member>
This causes some utilities that parse these files to have serious errors, such as the build scripts to generate documentation included in the ProjectScaffolding project..

Do you know if this is a new behavior in 3.1.2? Or has it been present for other releases?

Not sure. Suspect it's relatively new, as those build scripts only recently started failing. Will try to narrow down when this occured originally, but it seems wrong in any case...

Any update on this one? Do you have a repro solution so that we can check if this is a new behavior or longstanding issue?
