Description Glen A. Foster 2002-04-15 14:03:37 EDT
Description of Problem: Something is not right with the mdoc.samples.7
man-page.  If you run the command "man 7 mdoc.samples 2> stderr", there's data
in the file "stderr".

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
# rpm -qf /usr/share/man/man7/mdoc.samples.7.gz

How Reproducible: 100%

Steps to Reproduce:
1. man 7 mdoc.samples 2> stderr

Actual Results: contents are as follows:
# cat stderr
Usage: .Rv -std in sections 2 and 3 only (#1664)
mdoc warning: list open at EOF!  A .Bl directive has no matching .El

Expected Results: empty stderr output
Comment 1 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2002-07-18 19:04:11 EDT
This is a man page introducing the manpage macros themselves... and thus gets a
little unclean since it tries to display the macros as well as use them.
