This problem is well understood, man tries incorrectly to use a groff
comment as a preprocessor specification (a Sun man extension) and you
get the above rubbish.
The easiest fix is to get the lz/rz man pages fixed by removing the
Revision level line at the beginning. I am also trying to get man
modified so it is sensible about this feature and bottle out if it get
chars it doesnt understand.
Could Michael Alan Dorman <firstname.lastname@example.org> the lzrz/minicom
maintainer please fix lz/rz and/or minicom.
