Description Sven Arvidsson 2007-01-23 16:54:09 UTC
This bug was reported to the Debian BTS.

"Let's say I wan't to read manual page for dpkg.conf, and there is only one
page matching name "dpkg.conf".
When I type it in yelp_2.14 I get this funny search result page displaying me
one line with link to this manpage.

It should take me directly there. What else can user do when he has just one
link on page?"

Would be great to get some input on this. Are there usability issues with jumping to a search result directly without showing the user that there actually was only one match?
