On second thought: the problem is that the raw tbl output is in the
manual page, rather than tbl source, yet it is delimited by .TS/.TE
indicating that it should be treated as tbl source. Remove the .TS
and .TE and the manual page should format correctly.

for they are quick to anger and have no need for subtlety.
