This is a bug in the manpages themselves. The unformatted source should
have - for hyphenating normal prose, as in "happy-go-lucky", and \- to
denote the minus signs used as characters on the command line and other
such places. If the proper groff characters are used, your cut&paste
and searching problems will vanish and everything will look pretty.
