You can send the file to me, thanks. I already heard about a similar
bug and will investigate soon.

No you can't. But you can use the -dump and -load options to do
what you want:

ocamldoc -dump t.odoc -pp "...." <the files to preprocess>
ocamldoc -load t.odoc <the files you don't want to preprocess>

Moreover, you can use the -load option several times.
