Description of problem:
The in the docuemnation diretiory for tcsh there is a directory called "tcsh.html" which 
contains HTML documentation for tcsh.  This raises red flags on several of our webservers 
which have scripts that look for directories with common extension names.

Suggest making it tcsh-html or something that doesn't look like a normal file name.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Run something that looks for directories with .html at the end of the name

Actual Results:  /usr/share/doc/tcsh-6.12/tcsh.html is flagged as suspicious

Expected Results:  Nothing is caught

Additional info:

Don't see anyplace upstream to report bugs :)

The upstream place to report bugs is mentioned in the man page:
tcsh-bugs@mx.gw.com. I have sent there apointer to this report, including
a possible patch.

I don't think this warrants an RHEL update; in particular I see nothing
wrong with directories called "tcsh.html".

For the future (RHEL-5) the HTML documentation will probably be removed completely
because it just duplicates the man page.
