No big deal.

I had to reprint a bunch of old documents that use the .bd command
and found the problem. It would be interesting if people in this
newsgroup would list/contribute any difference or problem they find
in printing older (non-gnu) troff documents to build a FAQ. That
way it would be very straightforward to convert these old sources
to groff. For those of the cowboy type, even a script can be written
to automatically modify some of these commands.
