I asked this some 6 weeks ago but got no answers. hoping that the mail maybe reaches some other list members this time I dare to repeat my question:

I haven't forgotten your email, but I wasn't able to immediately
response, and it moved deeper and deeper into my cueue of unanswered
emails (which contains 350 emails, unfortunately).  It's always a good
thing to send a reminder!
well, I did'nt want to get on anyones nerves...

refer:./test:4: nothing to reference (probably `bibliography' before `sort')

this occurs if the document `test' contains the directive
but does _not_ include references.
As I recall, this warning was implemented because, in a previous
release, placing the bibliography command before any other commands
caused a segmentation fault.  The behavior was fixed: no segfault,
but when these commands are out of order, no output is produced,
which was presumably not the intended result - hence the warning.

Exactly.  Please provide a small example document which exhibits the
annoying behaviour you observe.  Maybe I can implement a fix.

please see the attachment and process with

`groff -R -ms refer_warn.trf'.

this should reproduce the warning.
