The following trivial patch fixes escaping of minus sign to avoid groff interpretting them as hyphens.

See the full Lintian explanation in

(I submitted this ages ago with an error, as I had mistakenly removed the "8" to the option's argument. I can't find that report anywhere, and the patch ended up not being applied).
