Yelp appears to start OK. In the tty appear 8 error messages like:
(yelp:2967): Gtk-CRITICAL **: IA__gtk_tool_button_new: assertion
`icon_widget == NULL || GTK_IS_MISC (icon_widget)' failed
After a bit more clicking, to try to get to an Info page, yelp crashes
(and exits) with:
failed: (document != NULL && YELP_IS_DOCUMENT (document))
