This is automatically generated email about problems in a man page for which
you appear to be responsible. If you are not the right person or list, tell
me and I will attempt to correct my database.
See http://catb.org/~esr/doclifter/problems.html for details on how and
why these patches were generated. Feel free to email me with any questions.
Note: This patch does not change the mod date of the manual page. You
may wish to do that by hand.

Problems with gpic.1:
1. List syntax error. This means .IP, .TP or .RS/.RE markup is garbled.
This confuses doclifter, and may also mess up stricter troff
interpreters like groffer and TkMan.
