This annoyed me, I found that if I changed /etc/man.conf
Code:
PAGER           /usr/bin/less -is

to
Code:
PAGER           /usr/bin/less -isR

my problems went away.
I just thought I would mention it for others that may be wondering how to fix it.

Moved from Other Things Gentoo to Duplicate Threads, refer to "Broken MAN pages??? Control Characters?".
