The first version in CVS, which dates from Jan 1996, seems to be
exactly the same in this regard as the current version (though
timer.el was created in 1990 according to the ChangeLog). So as far as
I can tell, it has never worked in the manner described in the
lispref. Though it would be nice if it did, changing the lispref seems
like the best change at this time.
