Can you send me this file, please ?  I think there may be something
wrong with it.

There is a bug here in install-info, namely a missing \n after the
colon of `Miscellaneous:'.

I think there is a bug in the base dir file too, which is why I'd like
a copy of it.  I've fixed the bug in install-info, it will be in dpkg
