Thanks for the report!

Unfortunately, Debian's woody is still based on textutils-2.0, even
though that version is quite old -- it's been almost 3(!) years.
The latest is textutils-2.0.21, and head from that package
no longer has the bug you report.  There have been many other
bug fixes and improvements since August, 1999.
