From Bugzilla Helper:
Description of problem:
the man page for the 'cdrecord' command is truncated,
the output stops in the middle of the text.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. man cdrecord | wc -l
Actual Results: wc reports 756 lines of text and an error message occurs:
iconv: illegal input sequence at position 37354
Expected Results: The number 1252 is expected, this happens to be
the number of lines in cdrecord man page on my RH9 installation
user root has no problem, so this bug might
be locale-dependent. My $LANG is sk_SK, root's
$LANG is en_US.UTF-8.
most likely an illegal UTF-8 sequence inside of the man page.
fixed in 1.58 in rawhide
