It has nothing to do with texdoc, because it just finds the file and
calls the pdf viewer, in your case acroread.
texdoc is not responsable for errors the pdf viewer
might have with a pdf file. Thus there is a problem with either
minitoc.pdf or AR9 (or both).

AR7/Linux and AR8/Linux do properly work with minitoc.pdf
(tested with acroread -toPostScript).
