Good point.

Right, I thought of that after sending the patch.  That also helped
explain the other problem you found:

I needed to add type name escaping in two places.

What happens now is that in the template GetInheritedMembers, it
recursively assembles some content like this:

<Members Name="Object" FullName="System.Object">
  <Member ...
<Members Name="MyClass" FullName="MyNs.MyClass">
  <Member ...

Then when listing a member, rather than using ../.. to get to the type
(which is no longer in the tree of this content), it uses
parent::Members to go up a level to get the declaring type of the
member.  Further, when assembling the link, it needs to put a file path
before the #, which is why the # moved from the a nodes up earlier.
