Package: emacs24-common
Version: 24.5+1-6
Severity: normal

Dear Rob Browning,

recently, I observed a bug in emacs24 when using the built-in manpage
To reproduce it, start emacs under X and call two man pages:

$ emacs -q
<M>-x man<RET>tune2fs<RET>      # call a manpage
<CRTL>-x o                      # switch into manpage
<CRTL>-x 1                      # show only this frame
<M>-x man<RET>mke2fs<RET>       # call another manpage
<CRTL>-x o                      # switch into new manpage
<M>->                           # jump to its end

The second man page is cut and ends in the middle of a word.
I don't remember with which version of emacs the bug appeared. "man.el" did not
change from version 24.4 but from 24.3.
And unfortunately I don't have access to an older emacs.
Doing this in a shell (emacs -q -nw) works correctly.
Any idea?
