Ubuntu 5.04 / 5.10 : texinfo regression bug fix (USN-194-2)

Description

USN-194-1 fixed a vulnerability in the 'texindex' program. Unfortunately this update introduced a regression that caused the program to abort when cleaning up temporary files (which are used with extraordinarily large input files). The updated packages fix this.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
