Update of bug #63332 (project groff):

                  Status:             In Progress => None                   
         Planned Release:                  1.23.0 => None                   


Follow-up Comment #9:

Parking this issue until after the groff 1.23.0 release as it is now

    tmac/fallbacks.tmac: Mitigate Savannah #63332.
    * tmac/fallbacks.tmac: Comment out four of the fallback character
      definitions for (preconv'd) Unicode character input added to address
      Savannah #58930 (corresponding to \[dg], \[dd], \[%0], and \[rn]; they
      are failing for not yet understood reasons involving "macros" attached
      to groff character info structs, and the semantics of what it means
      for a character to "exist" per the 'c' conditional operator.  Fixes
      regression when using "tty-char.tmac" (which nroff loads by default).
      Problem introduced by me in commit 132182bd71, 23 October.  The hope
      is to resolve this issue post-groff 1.23.0.  Thanks to Dave Kemper for
      the report and discussion in Savannah #63332.
