Thank you Masayoshi and Naoto for looking into it.

About the missing space, unfortunately, this is a "feature" of the 
translation system. It's out of my control. I received the following 
from translation team when copyright line was causing conversion error:

When we translate the statement, "Copyright (c) xxxx, xxxx, Oracle 
and&sol;or its affiliates. All rights reserved.", each single sentence 
is handled as translatable string segment, then stored into Repository 
as they are. However, when the Japanese contents are rebuild, the spaces 
between two sentences are removed because these are also treated as 
Japanese strings. In general, no space is required between multiple 
sentences in Japanese, so this feature is implemented in the current system.

About the corruption of jcmd.1, in the current promotion, Japanese 
jcmd.1 has size 0 as well. It's not a regression, but something still to 
be investigated.
