What do you get then var_dump()ing the $info object?

Ian, With current CVS version (upcoming version 1.7.0), we still have this problem. But, to be honest, it should not be arrive. Why ? Because the pear config file "pear.ini" (on windows) ".pearrc" (on other platform) should exists into PEAR_CONFIG_SYSCONFDIR directory (defined by constant). If it's not, second parameter of PEAR_Info class constructor (in version 1.7.0) will allow to define where to find this file. Interresting for non standard PEAR installation, or if you don't want to have a such config file outside your PEAR environment. Are you agree with such situation. If YES, I will close the bug !

*** assigned to me and fixed on upcoming release 1.7.0RC1. Will raise a warning message if pear config file does not exist to prevent unexpected results.

This bug has been fixed in CVS. If this was a documentation problem, the fix will appear on by the end of next Sunday (CET). If this was a problem with the website, the change should be live shortly. Otherwise, the fix will appear in the package's next release. Thank you for the report and for helping us make PEAR better.
