Description Glen A. Foster 2002-04-15 13:27:12 EDT
Description of Problem: Something is not right with the mf.1 man-page.  If you
run the command "man 1 mf 2> stderr", there's data in the file "stderr".

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
# rpm -q $(which mf)

How Reproducible: 100%

Steps to Reproduce:
1. man 1 mf 2> stderr

Actual Results: contents are as follows:
# cat stderr
/usr/bin/gtbl:<standard input>:148: `.' not last character on line
/usr/bin/gtbl:<standard input>:148: giving up on this table

Expected Results: empty stderr output
