The problem is with the  Memorandum-style  signature

Without .warn in the beginning of your file you were
missing several warnings from Groff.  I added it and
saw  where  the  errors were.  It turns out that the
.SG macro requires that at least four  arguments  be
passed to the .AU macro.  This example works:

  .TL "Anton's title"
  .MT 5
  .AU Smith J. Location Dept.
  .AT "CEO"

The  "--"  you are talking about are two field divi-
sors, between location, department and initials, and
the signature macro seems to handle them incorrectly
when at least one of them is empty.
