It was just a five minute change, anyway here's a bug:

The manual says:

 -- Variable: indicate-buffer-boundaries
     There are four kinds of basic values:

          Display the icon at the top of the window top in the left
          fringe, and other in the right fringe.

Perhaps that should say

          Display the angle icon at the top of the window in the left
          fringe, and at the bottom of the window in the right fringe.

A value of t seems to display an angle item angle icons at the top and bottom
of the window but both in the left fringe.

Also it doesn't make sense to say ANYTHING-ELSE and then go on to say what
further values mean:

     If value is a cons `(ANGLES . ARROWS)', ANGLES controls the angle
     icons, and ARROWS controls the arrows.  Both ANGLES and ARROWS...

Perhaps ANYTHING-ELSE should be t and this should be equivalent to (t . nil)
or perhaps ANYTHING-ELSE should be (ANGLES . ARROWS).
