1. Bug confirmed.

2. I suspect it's a problem with 'perldoc -f' -- but *not* the problem
which underlies RT #118615.  (The patch that Shlomi submitted for
118615, which works for me, does not work for me for this problem.)

3. As was the case with #118615, since Pod-Perldoc is primarily
maintained on CPAN, I am going to close this ticket here and open up a
ticket at 

Thank you very much.
