This seems to be a bug in groff's handling of the XA/XS macros,
but it may go deeper than that.

Include a complete, self-contained example that will allow the bug
to be reproduced,

% cat bug
# bug - explicate a groff bug
#  When an XA/XS entry is broken between two lines and
#       the second line starts with leading spaces and
#       the following text begins in Courier font,
#  the leading spaces get interpreted as being in Courier.
