Description Moritz Barsnick 2004-01-06 05:20:17 EST
Description of problem:
ntpdate's man page displays the desciption of the "verbose" option in 
a mishapped manner.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
ntp-4.1.2-5

How reproducible:
always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. man ntpdate
2.
3.
  
Actual results:
[...]
       -d      option always uses unprivileged ports.

       -       v Be verbose. This option will cause ntpdate 's
               version identification string to be logged.
[...]

Expected results:
[...]
       -d      option always uses unprivileged ports.

       -v      Be verbose. This option will cause ntpdate 's
               version identification string to be logged.
[...]


Additional info:
Note what happened to "-v".

I don't have the source right now, but in the man page's troff 
(whatever that's created from), it's definitely wrong.
