Just for the record, the amiga community saw strange behaviour of
man sometime ago.  It turned out to be a console bug with underlines,
which hardly any other application than man uses.  Well, it's "less"
I suppose, but most files you "less" don't have underline sequences
in it except those nroffed.

My guess: check underlining in your console!  Don't flame me if I'm
wrong, it's just a guess.
