Description Michael Humphries-Dolnick 2003-12-11 08:56:40 EST
Description of problem:

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):bash-
2.05-8, kernel 2.4.9-e.25enterprise

How reproducible: consistently in our environment

Steps to Reproduce:
1. type 'man 1 umask'
Actual results:
<standard input>:14: realpath on `bash.1' failed: No such file or 

Expected results: bash builtins manpage

Additional info: One developer at our site adds this:
The error is emitted by "/usr/bin/nroff -mandoc" but it is only 
persuaded to by the input. The problem seems to be with the line:

	.so bash.1

(inside /usr/share/man/man1/builtins.1.gz itself).

Some problem with actual paths vs. configured paths, or else broken 
behaviour of the nroff ".so" directive maybe?
