Fixed in my last commit.

I have here:


At startup, _slang_doc_dir is "/usr/share/doc/libslang2" in my system.
This is apparently set in the Slang2 library itself:

    $ strings /lib/ | grep libslang2

Which version of libslang2 are you using?  What is the output of the
following command in your system:

    $ strings /lib/ | grep usr
