It seems that the fix of #93781 broke something else. Take tabularx as
an example, texdoc tabularx should launch 

xdvi /usr/share/texmf/doc/latex/tools/tabularx.dvi.gz

but instead it shows the Catalogue entry 


in the appropriate viewer. 

The reason is the order of extensions in $listext generated from
"kpsewhich --expand-brace='$TEXDOCEXT'":

listext=.pdf:.dvi:.ps:.html:.txt:.pdf.gz:.dvi.gz: [...]

Now .html is checked before dvi.gz. And for nearly every package there
is a html file, the CTAN catalogue entry. You can test it e.g. with

Since there seems to be no way to discriminate Catalogue entries from
other html documentation, I would suggest to move the html to the very
end. If somebody prefers the html documentation, he can bookmark it;
it's mainly two big documents (latex2e-html and uktug-faq). A wishlist
thing would be a file "htmlhelpindex.html" containing all html docs.

The following patch worked for me:
