Follow-up Comment #2, bug #53413 (project groff):

  The number 4 is not high enough to forbid the hyphenation as there are
patterns of type "5x$" and "^x5", so it must be changed to 6.

  The fundamental flaw of the used algorithms is to compare patterns to
the beginning and end of words without the anchor point '.'.

  "*roff" has the 'hy=1' which TeX does not(?).

  The new additional pattern files are simply a choice for those who
generally want to use hy=48 (current development state of groff) or
hy=1 (current stable version) with the current implementation of the
hyphenation algorithm.
