Description

[4.8.6-74-g1fcf904]

mc doesn't respect first-line comments in man pages like

'\" t

or

.\" e

to call tbl and eqn, respectively. To fix this I suggest to always use the pipe

... | tbl | eqn | nroff ...

which doesn't do any harm and is fast enough today to stay unnoticed by the user.

Please see #1539 comment 8, I think that's the right approach.
