Bug Description

Binary package hint: pmount

The section formatted thus:

.IR udf , \ iso9660 , \ vfat , \ ntfs , \ hfsplus , \ hfs ,
.IR ext3 , \ ext2 , \ reiserfs , \ reiser4 , \ xfs , \ jfs \ and
.IR omfs.

leads to bad line breaks in the man page; in particular, a huge horizontal gap between "hfs," and "ext3".

Also, there's a line break before "udf", which there shouldn't be (unless the list of file systems is all meant to be displayed somehow).

"man pmount" should make the problem fairly obvious in any case.
