Hi,

please remove a wrong .PP in various manual pages above SYNOPSIS:

.SH NAME
.PP
\fBadd_wchstr\fR,
\fBadd_wchnstr\fR,

\fBmvadd_wchstr\fR,
\fBmvadd_wchnstr\fR,
\fBmvwadd_wchstr\fR,
\fBmvwadd_wchnstr\fR \- add an array of complex characters (and
attributes) to a curses window
.SH SYNOPSIS

Affected are the following manual pages: add_wchstr bkgrnd border_set

I do not expect to see .PP in the following
