It turns out that C-u C-c? works: it opens a buffer with a list of related files
and then opens the selected one in my PDF viewer (okular).  It's only when I
call `TeX-documentation-texdoc' without a prefix argument that okular seems to
be started (a startup notification appears in the panel), but then disappears
and nothing happens.

texdoc itself has no problem starting the PDF viewer, and it seems all
`TeX-documentation-texdoc' does is calling it.  I don't understand why it works
with a prefix argument but not without one.
