Thanks for looking, Branden and Peter. Here's another
tbl-related problem I've encountered, in case the two are
connected. Groff acts as if every table were preceded by an
empty paragraph. This is why there is so much vertical space
between the headings and the tables that follow them. My
work-around was to put ".LS 0" in front of every ".TS".

I'm running groff 1.22.3, by the way. It's been patched but not
since 2016 so if it's bugs I'm seeing, they're not new.
