Bug#683817: /usr/share/doc/texmf/pgf/pgfmanual.pdf.gz: texdoc pgfmanual.pdf.gz -> "Sorry, no documentation found"

Package: pgf
Version: 2.10-1
Severity: important
File: /usr/share/doc/texmf/pgf/pgfmanual.pdf.gz
X-Debbugs-CC: Debian TeX Maintainers <debian-tex-maint@lists.debian.org>

Dear pgf and texlive-base maintainers,

I observe the following behaviour:

$ grep "texdoc pgf"  /usr/share/doc/pgf/README.Debian 
  For pdf document, run `texdoc pgfmanual.pdf.gz'.
$ texdoc pgfmanual.pdf.gz
Sorry, no documentation found for pgfmanual.pdf.gz.
If you are unsure about the name, try searching CTAN's TeX catalogue at

This means that the advertised method for reading the documentation for
pgf does no longer work. It is not clear whether this is a bug in pgf or
texlive-base (or something else). Please reassign the bug to the correct

Some random remarks that may help in tracking this down:

1) /usr/share/doc/texmf/pgf/pgfmanual.pdf.gz actually exists and
   contains the desired information.
2) /usr/share/texmf/ls-R lists pgfmanual.pdf.gz.
3) "texdoc pgfmanual.pdf.gz" reads /usr/share/texmf/ls-R.
4) The problem is a regression. That is to say it worked before. I
   cannot name a good version though.
