Description:
Only root can access the documentation in /usr/share/doc/packages/MySQL-server
drwxr--r--    2 root     root          416 2003-10-24 10:54 MySQL-server

How to repeat:
Read the contents of /usr/share/doc/packages/MySQL-server as a normal user.

Suggested fix:
Change the permissions with 'chmod go+x /usr/share/doc/packages/MySQL-server'
drwxr-xr-x    2 root     root          416 2003-10-24 10:54 MySQL-server

Thanks for the hint - this will now be resolved for upcoming MySQL releases,
starting with MySQL 4.0.17.
