Looks like a definite documentation bug to me, and it's still
there in the development version of the documentation. I think
a bug report should be filed.
A little bit of investigation shows that the documentation changes
were made in svn revisions 26181 and 26182 (
) as a fix for
but this doesn't seem to help much with figuring out what the
docs intend to say.
