David, won't work here, there's a bug indeed.
Part of it comes from numpydoc, that isn't completely compatible w/  
Sphin-0.6.1. In particular, the code doesn't know what to do w/ this  
'entries' parameter.
part of it comes from Sphinx. Georg said he made the 'entries'  
parameter optional, but that doesn't solve everything. Matt Knox  
actually came across the 'best' solution
Edit Sphinx/environment.py, L1051:
refs = [(e[0], str(e[1])) for e in toctreenode['entries'])]
refs = [(e[0], str(e[1])) for e in toctreenode.get('entries', [])]
