unreproducible on Linux and Mac OS X.

I get this behavior with man version 1.5o1, installed by default on Mac OS X 10.4.0.

No problem on Mac OS X 10.3.9 with man 1.1. Please provide more detail. At
which point exactly does it break? What does the breakage look like?

This has to do with "IN" not beeing defined / working on macosx or maybe the
latest groff version in general. so a quick fix would be to remove the line:
".nr IN 7" and replace all instances of IN with 7 (only one). I would prefer
of course to be able to set the default indentation.

Has anyone checked if the same behaviour happens on linux as well with the same
groff version? (macosx tiger uses a _very_ recent version afaik)...

Either macosx tiger or groff 1.19.x doesn't like the "IN" register,
replacing it by the value 7 fixed the issue.
