The main info directory displays empty.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.
info

Actual Results:
1.
Info: (dir)Top, 1 linii --All

Expected Results:
1.
Something like:

File: dir, Node: Top

This (the Directory node) gives a menu of major topics.
Typing "q" exits, "?" lists all Info commands, "d" returns here,
"h" gives a primer for first-timers,
"mEmacs<Return>" visits the Emacs manual, etc.

In Emacs, you can click mouse button 2 on a menu item or cross reference
to select it.

* Menu:

Utilities
* Bash: (bash). The GNU Bourne-Again SHell.

Libraries
* History: (history). The GNU history library API
* Readline: (readline). The GNU readline library API









-----Info: (dir)Top, 19 linii --All

Workaround:
1.
Open file /usr/share/info/dir in a text editor.

2.
Replace tabulators in the Top node line with commas.

3.
Save as /tmp/usr/share/info/dir.

4.
info '-f' '/tmp/usr/share/info/dir'
