[tex-live] texdoc problem on solaris

I encounter the following problem with texdoc from texlive 2009 on
Solaris 10. The behavior seems to be the same no matter what argument I
supply to texdoc. For example:

> texdoc amsldoc
/export/texlive/bin/texdoc:208: bad argument #1 to 'chdir' (string
expected, got nil)

Note: /export/texlive/bin is a symlink to
/export/texlive/2009/bin/i386-solaris .  The behavior remains the same
if I cd into the real binary directory.

This is a recent installation: tlmgr reports:
> tlmgr --version
tlmgr revision 14757 (2009-08-19 01:31:10 +0200)
tlmgr using installation: /export/xtp/texlive/2009
TeX Live (http://tug.org/texlive) version 2009-dev
