Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 14278
man displays man pages with <AD> inserted randomly
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:56 EDT
I've noticed man pages are displayed with an annoying inverse
<AD> scattered throughout. I've verified this with most of
the terminal emulators (xterm, GNOME term, and rxvt).
It's possible there are odd control characters embedded in the
man pages themselves.
This defect is considered MUST-FIX for Winston Gold-release
This seems to be because groff is told to use latin1.
Created attachment 1612 [details]
man-1.5h1-latin1.patch, which fixes the problem here
Fixed in 1.5h1-7
