I'm not a 'me' user at all, and I could only checked that the updated
version of the pacth you attached in the bug still fixes the small filie
in the original post.

Currently there is no 'me' example in groff source tree, I was wondering
if you would like to contribute an provide an 'me' example (something
more like a real document rather than the test file from the bug)?  This
way we would have an extra sanity check on the 'me' package.
