Description of problem:
With man-1.5m2-3, groff-1.18.1-33 and glibc-common-2.3.3-13 when I use
q to quit from any man page I get lines like

/usr/bin/nroff: line 69:  1648 Done                    /usr/bin/iconv
-f ${charset_in} -t utf-8 ${TMPFILE}
      1649                       | /usr/bin/groff -mtty-char -Tutf8
$opts 2>/dev/null
      1652 Broken pipe             | /usr/bin/iconv -f utf-8 -t

left on the terminal. Ideally man should quit quietly unless there are

Comment 1 Michael Young 2004-03-04 10:45:40 UTC
Actually it only seems to be occuring on long man pages (eg. man man)
where you quit on an early page, scrolling to the end and then
quitting exits silently as expected.
