Well when I typed two spaces after man, I heard man follow and then typed in
a man page to read and emacs just beeped and showed nothing in the buffer.
Thanks, I'll try the m-x man <cr> command <cr> and see if that's willing to
work.  This version of emacs may be misconfigured for all I know anyway.
