Well, I would have said "a pointer/cross-reference from
the "Clocking work time" section".

But actually, I see there *is* a link, at the foot of 8.4.1.
But I didn't see it (or its significance did not register).

Trying to re-construct my previous mental state, I think I
believed that the "Agenda" seemed to be about TODOs and
the like, and I'm not currently using that.  So I didn't
look/see the options that it offers, and nothing cued me
to the fact that it could/would display clocked time.

SO, two suggestions that would have maybe helped me:

The "full monty" solution would be to create a new sub-section
on "Correcting clocked time", and actually spell out what
you can do to fix up your clocked time when the you
realise you've done it wrong.

And add a sentence or two at the end of the first para of 8.4, saying that
clocked working time can be shown in some Agenda displays, and
mentioning the "l" option.

((Good grief!  While writing this, I've just tried the command again,
  and noticed that all previous activity on the current task is
  highlighted.  NEAT!  ))

Anyway, I'm a happy camper.  Thanks for all your help.
