That seems to be a separate issue (i.e. the autosummary code in
sphinx.ext was not updated after some changes to sphinx's autodoc).
I think it is fixed in the current versions of Sphinx.

The problem Warren is seeing is, I think, that autosummary tries to be
(too) smart, and tries to take only the first sentence. Of course, the
last dot in "i.e." looks like it terminates a sentence...
