mdoc problem: using .Pa with .Ar

Please Cc: me when replying.

I'm writting a manual page in which I need to write something like

.Pa Ar dir Ns /.somerc

I mean, dir/.somerc is a pathname, dir is an argument.

Unfortunately, this doesn't work as I expected and .Pa works as if
it had no argument (outputs ~).  Moreover, I'm not sure the .Ar
macro does only eat dir.

Any clue would be welcome, I'm quote new to the mdoc(7) format.

Thank you.
