The code used for building the docs can be found there:

I've searched a bit and can't find an obvious error that would lead to the issue.

My current suspicion is that some pyc files aren't getting cleaned up between successive builds, leading to nonexistent modules being included in the modindex.

Unfortunately that didn't change anything.

I did confirm however that the issue is not present if one only builds the 1.4 version of the doc (I tested this by deleting all the other "document release" objects in the admin).

My conclusion is that something is leaking between the different builds, but I can't figure out what it is.
