An asciidoc file showing the problem
Thanks, checking into this one.
This is still a problem with upstream asciidoc.
asciidoc-8.1.0-1.fc7 still shows this (Fedora rawhide, up to date). The upstream
version is 8.2.2 now...
Still the same with 8.2.2. Upstream confirms this bug, but it is really that
asciidoc doesn't handle names with more than "First Middle Last" (in this case,
"Last" is two words). This is to be fixed in the upcoming version...

The example fixed for asciidoc 8.2.3
With the upstream 8.2.3 this can be handled by separating words with '_', as
the fixed example shows.

My SPEC file
The 8.1.0 spec file (at least) was missing the images directory in %doc, see my
updated file here.
Current asciidoc-8.2.5-2.fc9 allows the workaround in #6.
