Bug #53541 has gone missing from the Savannah bug tracker. :(

Here it is in the archives of the bug-groff list.


Did this happen because one of the maintainers marked your bug as spam?

If so, that was quite a destructive action. :(

My patch is a correction of patch #53541.

The error can't be reproduced because the argument in the last ".as"-line is protected by '\/' (which I removed in the first patch) or now by '\&'.

Patch #53541 fixed a bug for odd numbers of arguments. The right italic correction was not applied in this case.

In fact the line numbers are off and the IR macro appears to be adding italic corrections where your copy of an-old.tmac is not.

Hi Bjarni,

I cannot reproduce the erroneous output you're getting with current groff git. See attachment.

Please check the version you're using?
