Groff Bug Report

Please read the PROBLEMS file before sending in a bug report.

Please fill in all fields, even if you think they are not relevant.

Please delete the text in brackets before sending it in.

Please report separate bugs separately.

Send the completed form either to bug-groff@prep.ai.mit.edu or
directly to me (jjc@jclark.com).  Messages sent to bug-groff can
sometimes take several days to reach me.

[The version of groff you are using.  For example, `1.05']

[The machine you are using.  For example, `Sun SPARCstation 2']

[The operating system you are using.  For example, `SunOS 4.1.1']

[The compiler you are used to compile groff. For example, `g++ 1.40.3']

[Include all the files necessary to reproduce the problem that are not
part of the standard groff distribution.  This includes font
description files, DESC files and macro files (with the exception of
the -ms and -mm macros: I have them).  Send them as as a shell archive
or as a uuencoded, compressed tar file.

It's easier for me if you can provide an example that doesn't depend
on any macro package, but obviously if you're reporting a problem with
a macro package that won't be possible.  Also a short example is more
convenient than a long one, but don't worry if you can't find a short
example.  Don't say something like ``any file that X'': always send a
definite example.]

[The command line that I should run in order to observe the bug. For
example, `gtroff -Tps bug.tr'.  If the commmand line uses -ms or -mm,
say whether these refer to the groff versions or the Unix versions of
the macros.]

[What goes wrong when that command line is run?  For example, `gtroff
gets a segmentation fault', or `The output looks bad because the bar
over the x is too long and is too far over to the left.'  If you get
an error message, include it here without modification: don't edit it
to make it more readable.]

SUGGESTED FIX [optional]:
[If you can suggest a fix for the problem, include a context diff
here.  But don't delay sending in a bug report in the hope of finding
a fix.  Guesses about the cause of the bug are not usually helpful.]
