Subject: doc string discrepancy in ibuffer-mark-old-buffers

Please write in English if possible, because the Emacs maintainers
usually do not have translators to read other languages for them.

Your bug report will be posted to the address@hidden mailing list.

Please describe exactly what actions triggered the bug
and the precise symptoms of the bug:

In ibuffer mode, I read the doc string for the . key, and it said

    ibuffer-mark-old-buffers is an interactive compiled Lisp function in 

    Mark buffers which have not been viewed in `ibuffer-old-time' days.


I then followed the link for the `ibuffer-old-time' variable, and
noted that it said

    The number of hours before a buffer is considered "old".

So I checked the source, and it looks like "hours" is indeed correct.

Here's the obvious patch to fix it:

If Emacs crashed, and you have the Emacs process in the gdb debugger,
please include the output from the following gdb commands:
    `bt full' and `xbacktrace'.
