I'm running Webmin 1.441 on Fedora 10. It appears the man search is appending "mode=1" to the man command it executes. For example, when searching for manpages on curl, the webmin.debug log shows the command executed is "man -k curl mode=1" and the page returns "No documentation matching curl found."
When I execute the command through the Webmin shell module, I get the following result:
> man -k curl mode=1
curl  (1) - transfer a URL
mode=1: nothing appropriate
It appears the extra "mode=1" is causing Webmin to ignore the results. However, when searching for something that returns multiple results, e.g. "man", the results come back fine, except for bug #2351264 ;-)
