Hi

Yelp currently crashes for everybody in Ubuntu on startup due to the introduciton by some package of /usr/share/gnome/help/libs/shipped-docs.  For some reason, librarian walks over this file and crashes because it has no dot in the filename.

I don't think rarian is supposed to parse this file, so I'll just attach a patch which doesn't crash and skips the file (just like it skips file with other extensions than .document and .section.

This is Launchpad bug https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/rarian/+bug/375896

Bye
