It should mention the GFDL section (which _is_ included) instead.  I'm
guessing that when the manual was converted to GFDL, the stale
reference to GPL was left behind by mistake.

I don't think this is a mistake: the printed version mentions cover
text because only that version actually has cover text.  But IANAL.

It says ``version 1.1 or later'', so there's no contradiction, at
least not legally.
