Update of bug #61386 (project groff):

                  Status:                   Fixed => In Progress            
             Open/Closed:                  Closed => Open                   
         Planned Release:                  1.23.0 => None                   


Follow-up Comment #2:

Seems to me this is not a groff problem, but a weakness in the way the man7
site generates the pages. If you choose to deliver the pages as linked pdfs
(rather than html), the problem is not present. This is a problem with the
workflow generating the pages. I don't understand why the line length is set
to 72 characters when most webpages are considerably wider. Use 82 characters
and the problem in your example disappears. Why make this change if the
"problem" is external to groff. The 72 char limit is related to punch cards
(the last 8 chars were for a sequence number (if you bothered - should see me
trying to use a hand punch!!!)
