Follow-up Comment #10, bug #45034 (project groff):

Regarding comment #9:

> .Ss Xr devd 8 Events

Bad idea.  Don't use macros in header lines.

Exactly, and not just for mdocmx, but for mdoc(7) in general,
and not just for now, but for good.  I should probably add
a warning message to mandoc(1) to be printed when people
make the mistake of putting macros into header lines.

In the context of mdocmx, i don't think you need to worry
about such craziness at all.
