That's not what I'm getting.

Previously, if I typed "pinfo something", and the info page did not exist,
I got the man page instead, or not found.

What I get now for "info rpm" is "Node: Yes-or-No Questions" of "File:
libc.info". It is chapter "7.8" of "The GNU C Library Reference Manual".
That is not related to rpm at all!

And in some pages, it crashes.

The index is broken. :-/
