However, even longer man pages such as bash(1) render without fail, so
there might be something special about the two examples above that
triggers this behaviour.

I suspect something wrong with ‘knot.conf.5.gz’, but I don’t have
tangible evidence.

Yup, that's about as far as I got before giving up and submitting to the wisdom of the crowd. We need someone who knows something — anything — about man pages, or someone who can reproduce this on another distro. I had no luck searching for similar bug reports.

...or do you mean with the knot.conf page *specifically*, as opposed to the rofi one? Is your suspicion based on something you saw in there?

It's not the .gz part: opening the uncompressed page with man directly has the same result.


For the record: apparently this doesn't happen on Debian, according to some fellow on IRC named ‘civodul’. There goes my brief hope that this was an (exclusively) upstream problem after all.

Kind regards,
