Default Viewing manpages: Headers and footers get repeated.

A "screenshot" from ls(1)

     D       The entry is a door.

     l       The entry is a symbolic link.

SunOS 5.11          Last change: 10 Feb 2009                    1

User Commands                                               ls(1)

     b       The entry is a block special file.

     c       The entry is a character special file.

The headers/footers get repeated, like man/troff is trying to output to a pages media.

This is really getting on my nerves ...
UNIX was not designed to stop you from doing stupid things, because that would also stop you from doing clever things.
