This bug report will be sent to the Free Software Foundation,
not to your local site managers!
Please write in English, because the Emacs maintainers do not have
translators to read other languages for them.

Your bug report will be posted to the address@hidden mailing list,
and to the gnu.emacs.bug news group.

In GNU Emacs 21.2.1 (powerpc-apple-darwin, X toolkit)
 of 2003-05-14 on scallop.hollyrd
configured using `configure  powerpc-apple-darwin --prefix=/sw --with-x 
--with-x-toolkit=lucid --without-toolkit-scroll-bars --without-gif 
'--infodir=${prefix}/share/info' '--mandir=${prefix}/share/man' 
'--libexecdir=${prefix}/lib''

Please describe exactly what actions triggered the bug
and the precise symptoms of the bug:

Try to get a man page for bash wth

    M-x man
    bash

The end of the buffer is truncated.  This is also true of man for most other
commands.  Run under xterm, and with it's output redirected to a file, "man
bash" produces complete results.  If I use edebug to look step
Man-bgproc-sentinel, I find that the buffer is already truncated, suggesting a
deaper bug perhaps.

This bug is reproducable.  It happens the same way every time.
