Bug#827634: ftplugin/man.vim: Does not handle window narrower than terminal width

Package: vim-runtime
Version: 2:7.4.1829-1
Severity: normal
File: /usr/share/vim/vim74/ftplugin/man.vim

The :Man command, provided by /usr/share/vim/vim74/ftplugin/man.vim,
always renders the manpage at the width of the terminal, not the width
of the man window in vim.

Ideally, I'd love to see the manpage re-rendered when the width changes
(or perhaps with C-l or similar), but at a minimum :Man should take the
current window width into account.
