I can't reproduce this on Fedora Core release 2 (Tettnang) with the
following packages :

- device-mapper-1.00.14-3
- groff-1.18.1-34
- man-1.5m2-6

Are you using FC2 test3? If so, try upgrading to FC2 final or above
packages.

Comment 2 Moritz Barsnick 2004-06-28 07:10:07 UTC
Okay, you got me on this one. Since my update to FC2, I cannot 
reproduce this either. I cannot - at this moment - figure out which 
groff package I actually had when I filed the bug. I might check.

For the time being, I'll just close this little tidbit as "works for 
me".

Thanks, Peter!
