Hi Jeff,

It looks like no one has responded to your bug report to bug-groff two months 
ago (although if someone responded off list, that wouldn't be archived).

Email is no longer the preferred way to report groff bugs.  The best thing to 
do is file your bug report at http://savannah.gnu.org/bugs/?group=groff (the 
groff documentation should be updated to reflect this).  You can file a bug 
here without creating an account.

Besides the fact that it's less likely to get lost, another advantage to filing 
your bug report here is that this bug tracker will preserve what you wrote.  
The bug-groff archive of your message 
(http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/bug-groff/2018-08/msg00028.html) is missing 
critical information because a poorly designed mechanism to hide email 
addresses also munged several of the register and macro names in your message 
(those containing an @).  If it weren't for this mangling, I would go ahead and 
paste your email into a bug report myself.  But with nine of these redactions 
in your message, too much information is lost.

Thanks for taking the time to file a report and doing some of the debugging
