Description Glen A. Foster 2002-04-15 14:04:24 EDT
Description of Problem: Something is not right with the suffixes.7 man-page.  If
you run the command "man 7 suffixes 2> stderr", there's data in the file
"stderr".

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
# rpm -qf /usr/share/man/man7/suffixes.7.gz
man-pages-1.39-2

How Reproducible: 100%

Steps to Reproduce:
1. man 7 suffixes 2> stderr

Actual Results: contents are as follows:
# cat stderr
grotty:<standard input>:1719: character above first line discarded
grotty:<standard input>:2642: character above first line discarded
grotty:<standard input>:3256: character above first line discarded

Expected Results: empty stderr output
Comment 1 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2002-07-18 15:51:59 EDT
This is groff saying it's having a hard time in TTY mode. Not likely to be
fixed, as the document itself doesn't seem broken.
