So not really a bug per se, but still really annoyed me.
Lines 229 through 232 of the Emacs tutorial read:

229 >> Try typing C-u 8 C-v now.
231 This should have scrolled the screen up by 8 lines. If you would like
232    to scroll it down again, you can give an argument to M-v.

The behaviour of these commands is the exact opposite however; As mentioned earlier in the tutorial, C-v scrolls down and M-v up. Sorry if you consider this a complete waste of time. But I thought after 26 years the tutorial would have been nailed by now.
