I can reproduce this.  But worse, in my case yelp immediately quits upon this
"warning" message.
Comment 2 Matěj Cepl 2008-07-29 13:08:16 EDT
Doesn't crash, but produces messages -- yelp-2.22.1-4.fc9.i386
Comment 3 Matthew Barnes 2008-11-10 16:08:28 EST
Hmm, system-config-{dates,services,users} are the only packages (on my system, anyway) using those categories.  If anything this is a rarian issue, but the category looks valid according to


Though I'm not yet sure how it all fits together.  Moving this over to rarian for now (which also belongs to me).

Found the problem, opened an upstream bug:

I'll post a patch if Don doesn't beat me to it.
