Bug#5036: xman shows garbage



Package: xcontrib
Version: 3.1.2-1

Program: xman

When selecting some manual pages from xman I get sometimes an unexpected
output.
Example:
I select the 'rcp' man page from xman and get (after formatting):

->START<-
copies files between machines. Each or argument is either a
remote file name of the form ''rname@rhost:path'', or a local
[...]
sion of
->END<-

The first line is in bold face. The rest is in normal face.

I think the crucial thing is whether the name of the program is in bold
face or not. Consider the following sections from the 'rcp' and the
'rstat' man page source code:

rcp:

I'm using debian 1.1, kernel 2.0.18 and libc 5.2.18-9.
