Actual Results:  An error message:

"toc:info" is not a valid location. Please check the spelling and try again.

Expected Results:  An index of available info pages

Additional info:

gnome-help-browser appears to work correctly

Resolved in latest gnome-core by removing toc:info from the help page for now.
In Nautilus, you can view info pagers using the Help sidebar tab.
A nicer help solution is being investigated for the future.

I am using nautilus 1.0.6-1, and I still cant use info or man pages from the
nautilus help sidebar tab (or anywhere else for that matter).  If I click on an
info page in the sidebar it says

info:gzip not a valid location. Please check the spelling and try again.

Unless you can be more specific about how to fix this very important problem, I
suggest that this bug be reopened.

1.0.6 hasn't ever been released in a supported product. Someone at Sun rewrote a
bunch of the help code from 1.0.5->1.0.6, it hasn't been through any kind of QA
on Red Hat's part. The info browsing works for me in the Nautilus we shipped in 7.2.

The eventual plan to fix it is a standalone help browser, but when that will be
complete and available I can't say at this point.
