I'm not getting the info on rpmatch, but on "libc". Read again. As there
is no info page for "rpm", it should instead give me the man page. It
should not search for any page containing the word rpm somewhere on it,
that was not requested: find it, or "return not found".

Both info and pinfo crash when viewing "File: find.info, Node: Primary
Index".


Ok, who do we report this bug to, to feedback?
