Summary: ri for specific method returns suggestion to refine search if there are similarly named methods

Initial Comment:
For example:

>>> ri IO#close
More than one method matched your request. You can refine
your search by asking for information on one of:

     IO#close, IO#close_read, IO#close_write, IO#closed?, IO#close

In 1.8.5, the docs for IO#close are returned as expected.
