Subject: Manpage formatting patch


A while ago, the Debian maintainer (Jackson Doak) noticed a formatting error in 
the manpage of pwqcheck and patched the Debian package, as this problem still 
exists upstream I'm forwarding the patch inline to you.

In addition to thepatch below, it looks like you have an excess backslash in 
the example given, as that is rendered by man.

Description: Fixes minor glitches in the manpages
