FW: Minor doc bug

The man page for emacs doesn't mention that the +n option (to start up at a certain line of a file) apparently only applies to the very next file listed.
 
For example, if I say
 
   emacs +10 foo bar
 
the cursor shows up in bar, at line 1 not 10. But if I say
 
   emacs +10 foo +10 bar
 
then the cursor does show up at line 10 of file bar. Seems like the right behavior, but it seems to me the man page should mention this under +n.  
 
Also, the man (at least the version here page points to address@hidden.
 
This is emacs 21.2.4, btw.
 
Thanks!
