I read the opposite in David's comment.  The documentation correctly
says what should happen, and what used to happen prior to around 2010,
but since then the code has behaved incorrectly IMHO.  So the
bug report should record the incorrect behaviour of the code.  As we don't
usually document buggy behaviour, the docs should not be changed,
unless, maybe, to remove the statement either way.
