this is http://bugs.debian.org/522389 submitted by Simon Waters:
As per resolved bug #336078 POSIX standardised on path/ipath over

However manual page still says "ipath" is deprecated use "iwholename". Whilst
"wholename" correctly says to prefer "path" for portability. Took me a while
to track down the explanation and current status of these options.

I believe upstreams online documentation is also incorrect on this matter,
although the code correctly (since 4.4.0) no longer warns about use of ipath,
and the changelog and NEWS both notes these changes and why.

Patch against GIT head attached.
