i would be interested to hear about all bugs for future references.
I will continue to work on the GPLv2 clone of GNU roff -- that
i will maintain -- again in the nearer future, and have brought
that almost in sync with v1.22.3 years before.  (In sync, but
having left off some things which touch code, and that is GPLv3.
I have not seen annoying bugs in my daily, very unscientific
though, use of the FreeBSD version of groff for what can be called
many years.
