[issue5352] Missing 'non overlapping' clause in str.count documentation

New submission from Matteo Dell'Amico <della at linux.it>:

The str.count (http://docs.python.org/dev/py3k/library/stdtypes.html)
documentation does not report that it returns the number of
*non-overlapping* instances. For example, I expected 'aaa'.count('aa')
to be 2 and not 1. Compare this with the string module documentation,
where the non-overlapping clause is reported.
