Follow-up Comment #3:

Hi Branden,

thanks for checking!

The warning message was due to the four backslashes in "\\\\n[CT]".  Before
the patch, that code was inside two nested macro definitions, so they all got
expanded.  After the patch, it is only inside a single macro definition.  So i
had to reduce the number of backslashes from four to two, which i did before
pushing the patch.

Given that you agreed to the idea, i pushed it rather than starting a game of
patch ping pong, hoping that will make life and testing easier for everyone.

Regarding the different behaviour in -T ps/pdf and -T utf8/ascii mode, note
that the former macro .an-init was called at different  times depending on the
cR register, which is on by default for nroff but off by default for troff. 
So it doesn't surprise me that a bug related to it only affected some output

Feel free to set this ticket to "closed" once you are satisfied that what we
have in git is now good.  Thanks!
