See also Bug 153336. Looks like this problem was previously fixed. Feel free to re-open 153336 if that makes more sense. First time bug reporter - please excuse any lack of etiquette.

First ran into this problem with version 1.4.7. Downloaded 1.6.3 source, built & installed it however problem remains.

System: RHEL 5 (2.6.18-164.el5, x86_64)


Example source file:

@page cmf_d
CMF Daemon

@Section cmfd-synop SYNOPSIS

@Par abc Hello
This is a test.

Results in man page fragment:

cmf_d - CMF Daemon
\fBabc Hello\fP.RS 4
This is a test.

Man page looks like this:

cmf_d - CMF Daemon

abc Hello.RS 4 This is a test.

Fixed by post processing:

An inelegant hack to fixup the man page converts the \fP preceding .RS to \n.

sed -e 's/\fP.RS/ \n.RS/g' < cmf_d.8 > cmf_d.tmp
mv cmf_d.tmp cmf_d.8

Resulting in man page fragment:

cmf_d - CMF Daemon
\fBabc Hello
.RS 4
This is a test.
