Default funny character on man page of aptitude

Hi,

The man page of aptitude has some funny charters around the options which make the manual a bit unreadable. Here is a snapshot
<package>fB+fR
Install <package>.

<package>fB+MfR
Install <package> and immediately mark it as automatically installed (note that if nothing
depends on <package>, this will cause it to be immediately removed).

<package>fB-fR
Remove <package>.

<package>fB_fR
Purge <package>: remove it and all its associated configuration and data files.


$ cat /etc/debian_version
4.0
$ dpkg-query --show aptitude
aptitude 0.4.4-4

Any ideas why is this happening?

Cheers,
Pavlos

http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=438725 has quite a lot
about this.
