Heh, I just installed three virtual machines: debian stable, testing, and unstable.  Guess what?  None of them reproduce the issue.

This is very weird.  AFAIR, the only difference that I have compared to a clean Sid install, is that I have groff(1) from source, but you also have it.  What else can I have that may be doing this weird thing?

Building and installing groff from source from git HEAD in the Sid clean machine triggers the bug (nothing else did).  I'm now almost convinced it's groff.

I'll try in the stable machine, just to check.

Okay, so I tried with Debian stable, and groff built from source doesn't have a bug there.

To reproduce the bug you need:

- Debian Sid
- Any pager that does highlighting will do (tried less and batcat).
- Any terminal emulator will do (tried xfce and xterm).
- groff built from git HEAD
