manpages in yelp
 
I am having trouble viewing manpages with yelp.

Typing 'yelp man:bash' at the command prompt spews out a ton of messages on the terminal about "unmatched element", and it is unable to bring up the man page. Starting yelp alone brings it up with an empty "Help Topics" page. (Where are the man, info and gnome indexes hidden in Debian, and how to make them show up?). Some help pages, however, show up properly from the command line, for example 'yelp info:cvs'. Some show up even if they spew a lot of information on the console ('yelp man:dpkg').

I am running debian testing (etch) on i386 and the yelp version is 2.10.0-3. Any help is appreciated. Thanks!
