Description of problem:
When loading development (3) manpages, yelp popups an error message complaining that the page was not found - but shows the page regardless.
E.g., for malloc:
Page not found
The requested page was not found in the document /usr/share/man/man3/malloc.3.gz.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install man-pages package (if not already installed);
2. Open yelp;
3. Click Manual Pages;
4. Click Development;
5. Click any manpage.
Manpage is shown.
Error window popups complaining that the page was not found.
Manpage should be shown.
No error popups when there is no real error.
I can confirm this bug also on x86_64. For example running:
$ yelp man:zlib
from a command line triggers this bug.
I can no longer reproduce this bug in Fedora 9 using the procedure given in
comment #0 or comment #1. Closing as CURRENTRELEASE.
