In Groff 1.22.4, the default device of 'grog' seems to have been changed: it is now 'ps'.  What's more, 'grog' doesn't honor GROFF_TYPESETTER (which I have set to 'ascii'), so now I have to invoke 'grog' with an explicit "-Tascii" option to get previous behavior.

Please teach 'grog' to honor GROFF_TYPESETTER.
