I believe the reason is because the glyph for the sqrtex/radicalex which groff 
delivers in the Symbol font actually overlines the following glyph, and it is 
the definition in ps.tmac which "corrects" this so that it works for eqn. 
Other fonts which have their own sqrtex glyph actually overline themselves 
(rather than what follows), so they don't need the same correction.

What happens if you include the command 

.rchar radicalex 

to remove this correction?
