Thank you, Mike.

Tadziu HOffman has pointed out my mistake:
I was incorrectly using the VM macro -- 
To set the margins to zero it had to be
called with the -T key:

.VM -T 0u 0u

While the man page says: "No  argument resets
the margin to zero or the default (7v 5v) if
-T was used.", neither '.VM' nor '.VM -T' does
set zero vertical margins and the only way to
do it seems to use the above call with -T and
with arguments.
