           Summary: mdoc2man.awk causes flaw in ssh(1) man page
           Product: Portable OpenSSH
           Version: 3.8.1p1
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P3
         Component: Build system
        AssignedTo: openssh-bugs at mindrot.org
        ReportedBy: kreft at belwue.de

mdoc2man.awk does not translate line 642 in ssh.1 properly during build:

 640: .It NumberOfPasswordPrompts
 641: .It PasswordAuthentication
 642: .It Port

 642: .TP
 643: NumberOfPasswordPrompts
 644: .TP
 645: .B
 646: .TP
 647: Port

Apart from leaving out "PasswordAuthentication" this construct isn't appreciated
by Solaris8 nroff. Suns implementation skips several paragraphs after this point
if one tries to view the manpage. groff seems to be more resilent.
