docs was fixed in 1.7.1, since this was released on 18.6.2012

see icinga-core.git branch r1.7, cd docbook, git pull && git log

     docs issue #2690: limit grant to icinga db

so it's a bug in a script which is shipped example wise upstream. SuSe 
packages are the only known pkg source using those scripts, even the 
repoforge rpms do not use those scripts (therefore the 
README.RHEL.idoutils fix by me). so this might still be an issue, but 
only for those manually invoking such scripts from the examples.
