CVS history -w inconsitency?

Can anybody explain to me what the `-w' option to the `cvs history' command should do? The documentation and the program seem to differ on this point.

The documentation states, "Show only the records for modifications done from the same working directory where `history' is executing.", which makes perfect sense, but the implementation, at least, is fishy. `cvs history -wo' actually selects _more_ records than `cvs history -o' here, and it looks like the implementation is basing its decision about whether to print a record on whether the record's working directory matches the working directory of the previous record, not the actual working directory the command was run in.

Since I can't think of a good reason to want the current actual behavior, I'm guessing the behavior should be changed to match the documentation?
