I'm also under the impression you didn't report that, Reinhard. Everyone
*please* report problems on the texdoc mailing-list. When my time is limited, I
read it with much higher priority than the texlive list, so it really is the
best way to have a problem solved quickly (or at all).

Thanks to Philipp for Cc-ing the texdoc list on parts of this discussion.

I'd like to emphasize that I do welcome simple reports like "texdoc foo gives
bar but I expect baz" without fixes. More often than not I'll just add (or
remove in this case) an alias (or ask more opinions if I'm not sure baz is the
correct result) and it makes one more correct result for everyone without much
work or discussion.

Of course reports with fixes, or patches implementing new features are even more
welcome :)
