Thanks very much for troubleshooting it and figuring that out.
The cause of that is code I added between the releases. For the
next release, I will either just remove the code or fix it so that
it embeds the comments without causing formatting problems. (But
since the indexterm data is really not useful in groff, I will
likely just remove that code so that I don't have to spend time
trying to figure out how to make it work correctly).
