Yes, and the only reasonable way to fix this weirdness is to do what
other similar Emacs commands do (e.g. `compile' and `grep'): first display
the output buffer, and later when the formatted output is ready, put it
to this buffer.  Just imagine how unfriendly it would be if `compile'/`grep'
worked like `man' currently works by waiting while the shell command is
finished, and then suddenly popping up the output buffer!
