In the qstat manpage for -explain the next line shoudl begin with:

'c'

but as ' can't be the first character in a groff line, it's implemented as \' which will be translated to a space plus a forward quote
(openSUSE 11.1) or an illegal character in Debian Lenny.

The correct implementation should be one of:

\(aq
\[cq]c'

where \[cq] stands for closing quote. The optimum would be of course to rework the complete man pages to have such notations in the usual:

\[oq]some text\[cq]

style which would also provide a nice postscript output when the man pages are being formatted through groff for it.

(There seems also to be an error in the groff_char manpage, as \` doesn't produce a right quote, but a left one.)
