I think the right fix for that is to display the buffer before it
gets filled, so you don't need any new command like
"Man-update-manpage".  It will also solve the problem that if generating
the manpage takes a long time, it ends up popping up in your face
unexpectedly (since you've lost patience in the mean time and moved on
to something else).
