Bug Description


I've run in to a problem in man page generation to do with fonts.

Something like:

    Note that **``rdnssd``**(8) is required to use RDNSS with networkd. No extra
    software is required for NetworkManager.

gets rendered wrongly: the bold text goes right to the end of the line, rather than ending when rdnssd does. You can see this by doing 'man netplan' on a bionic box and searching for rdnssd.

This is reported upstream:
It was fixed in

Please could you backport that commit to bionic?
