    [docs]: Fix unit error in `\[dru]` descriptions.
    * doc/groff.texi (Page Motions): Fix error: the `\r`, `\u`, and `\d`
      escape sequences move in ems, not vees, despite being vertical
      motions.  Add discussion and example.
    Problem dates back to import of Texinfo manual, commit af2d6f8e (26
    December 1999).
    Also reverts commit c6a01c81 by me, 20 May 2021.
