I went back to a very old document using troff and MM. It is a tutorial on using troff at the macro package level without needing to know much about the low level troff. I was contemplating updating it and putting it out there.

I am trying to use a display with fill mode on, i.e.

        .DS 1 1

The left margin is indented slightly. Unfortunately, the right margin
is not shrunk by the same amount with groff_mm.

I know that the original MM package handled it flawlessly.

Does anybody have a fix for this or do I need to sort out the bug?
