The suggestion fixed this for me in my terminal emulation sessions after I
had updated my Cygwin to include this version of groff. However, I have a
preferences for viewing man pages in XEmacs for cygwin (21.4p13) and now the
output is all garbled.
Not understanding the problem well enough, it would be appreciated if, as
well as a fix, someone could explain if this is an introduced bug, or a
change in behavior, and if the latter, the rationale behind it.
Brief system data (cygcheck output seems like an overkill in this
$ uname -a
CYGWIN_NT-5.0 shaddy 1.5.5(0.94/3/2) 2003-09-20 16:31 i686 unknown unknown
Thanks in advance,
