``More correct'' might not be good enough: it could be better for the
situations you tried, but we cannot guarantee it is always better.
That's why it is IMHO wrong to use incorrect methods.

So I think we should come up with a different approach, one that
guarantees that the screen width passed to `man' is the correct one.
Could you please try to think about such a different solution?
