	It is; I suspect your bug report belongs best in the Ubuntu bug tracker
where, Bjoern can investigate.

	What fun; I imagine that that file has moved from this 3.3.0 package
(was that a pre-release package ?), into the help package where it
really belongs.

	Or is it possible we are bundling the en_US help and also providing a
help-pack ? [ which would suck ]. It'd be great to file a bug and get
some more detail archived there.
