Thanks for your report. Unfortunately, I have no access to my working
texlive+texdoc environment right now (holidays + laptop breakage), so I'm
afraid it'll take some time before I can look into it.

In the meanwhile, may I request a few additional informations?
- Does it happen only with l2kurz? If so, what is the output of 'texdoc -l
- which version of texdoc are you using? If it's 0.47 as I suspect, is it
possible for you to upgrade and try with 0.60?
