  Thanks for testing.

  I use stripped tmac files and "andoc.tmac" caused the bug in
compatibility mode.

  There is a comment in the file about

.\" Due to a bug in GNU troff it necessary to have a no-op line between
.\" '.do' and '\*'.             ^

   missing                      is

  The fix is to change the '.' line before the '\\*(...' lines to,
for example,

.do nop\" DO NOT REMOVE the line, see an earlier comment


  The comment about the bug should also be in the general documentation.
