Does this differ from the patch I used, I suppose.

ok, I was just to upload a new man-db :-)

There's only one way: test it :-)

Right now I'm uploading groff_1.15-3.ja.1_i386.deb into experimental.
It's the 1.15-3 in frozen plus the patch, nothing else.

It should be quite the same as the other package, I suppose, but we can
ask people in debian-i18l to use it instead of frozen groff, and report
problems in their environment.
