PATCH: An alternative nroff fix to 12724

Add a single space in a strategic spot, and you prevent yodl from running
the PARAGRAPH() macro, which is where all the mess comes in.

The real root of the problem is that the macro definitions in yodl can't
be pushed on a stack, so zman.yo settles for toggling them between two
states.  Of course, when you have a startitem() nested inside another
startitem(), two states is not enough.
