Bug in tail program in Fedora Core 6

It appears as if the tail +n functionality has disappeared. The info tail 
output still states that
something like tail +2 should output from the second line onwards, as does man 

This functionality has been in tail on unixes from days of old (> 20 years) and 
I for one have written many
scripts that use this, such as:

ls -l | tail +2

in order to get rid of the first line with the Total number of files.
