 Priority:  normal  |   Milestone:  6.7                          
Component:  Book    |     Version:  SVN                          
 Severity:  normal  |    Keywords:                               
 I noticed a regression in Man-DB 2.5.7, which may require a patch in
 current LFS 6.6 and SVN branch.

 When trying to display any man page located in a directory
 /usr/share/man/<language>, I get the following error:[[BR]]
 man: man.c:2393: display: Assertion `decomp->ncommands == 1' failed.

 Two notices:[[BR]]
 - This problem doesn't occur when I gzip the manpages present in the
 problematic directories,[[BR]]
 - The problem doesn't exist in Man-DB-2.5.6.
