Reproduced this.
Comment 3 Lon Hohberger 2003-05-29 16:21:55 EDT
Actually, this is caused by a bug in gcc/g++ iostream libraries, and will be
fixed in the final release of QU2.

Output from a program which was redirected or piped to the standard input of
another program was getting quashed.  This caused the documentation-generating
helper "gethelp.cc" in the scripts directory in the source tree to fail. 
Texinfo was complaining about 'invalid doc format' - which is true - because the
file it was trying to read was empty.
