Hi,

for all the people having the manpath problem:

What worked for us was checking the $MANPATH variable in a shell
(in our case: /usr/local/man:/usr/share/man:/usr/man:/usr/X11R6/man:/usr/openwin/man:/opt/gnome/man)
and replacing in /etc/csh.cshrc the "evil line" ;-)

setenv MANPATH "`(unsetenv MANPATH;manpath -q)`"

by

setenv MANPATH usr/local/man:/usr/share/man:/usr/man:/usr/X11R6/man:/usr/openwin/man:/opt/gnome/man

Of course not a final solution, because the manpath might change over time,
but until SuSE has some real fix, this one avaiods the hanging path without
changing the security script which causes it...

Best,
Frank
