The fix to bug #61034 has the side effect of disallowing input that formerly
worked, e.g.:

printf '.pl 10v\nHello.\n' | groff -me -Tascii

This produced an error-free 10 lines of screen output in 1.22.4.  In a build
from the latest sources, it aborts with the error "e.tmac: cannot format short
page length 400u".
