Created attachment 116349 [details] ps output when seeing xscreensaver documentation For me, seeing xscreensaver documentation by clicking Document sometimes crashes X server. It seems that this is because when clicking Document, the command "man" is looking at not the (gzipped) documentation file but at the binary file of the command ( which is at /usr/libexec/xscreensaver/...) , which is probably due to the PATCH3 or PATCH4 in xscreensaver-4.21-4.src.rpm . See the attached file, which is the output of "ps auwwxf" when I browse a documentation of xscreensaver

Created attachment 116732 [details] Patch for man command to use the basename of screenhacks A workaround patch for man command to use the basename of screenhacks. In the defalut setting, the manual page name of a screenhacks is the same as that of the screenhacks and all the manal pages are in the path of "manpath". So using the basename of the screenhacks works under the current fc4 setting. If the directory of the manual pages is changed, this patch no longer works.

This report targets the FC3 or FC4 products, which have now been EOL'd. Could you please check that it still applies to a current Fedora release, and either update the target product or close it ? Thanks.
