The doc for this doesn't fit the current behavior, and it hasn't since at least
as far back as Emacs 22.

Please correct the doc now so that it matches either the expected code fix or
the current behavior.  That will help either way if the code fix doesn't happen
soon.  (If the code is fixed soon, then both code and doc can be corrected

The doc needs to be fixed, regardless of when and whether the code gets fixed.
(Unless, that is, the current doc corresponds to the code fix you have in mind.)
