the new doc version used in latex-dev incorporates a few ideas of
dox, see the documentation. Beside others it now also defines the
command \SpecialMacroIndex, and defines it defined
\SpecialUsageIndex with it:


As dox then does \let\SpecialMacroIndex\SpecialUsageIndex
this loops.

Probably dox would need a fix here, it should check if
\SpecialMacroIndex is already defined. If I change dox to use


your skeleton compiles.

Thanks for trying latex-dev. It helps to identify such problems :-)
