Notes about issue docbook_to_man_one_byte_delta in unstable

Identifier: docbook_to_man_one_byte_delta
Suites: stretch / buster / unstable / experimental
Description: The package uses docbook-to-man;
the man page has a single byte that has a different value on both builds (in one build it has the correct value and in the other a garbage value);
the difference occurs on i386 but not on amd64 nor armhf.
Examples to date:
. 1st: "o" 0x6F, 2nd: " " 0x20 # 2nd is correct
. 1st: "\t" 0x9, 2nd: "I" 0x49 # 1st is correct
It's possible that there is more than one root cause here (i.e. multiple similar issues).
The tab issue is undefined behaviour in memcpy, see bug. seems to only actually break on i386 (tested on am64 -m32).
"\n\011" gets translated to " \111" (capital I), seemingly by complete coincidence.
Should be fixed in 1:2.0.0-36
