Well, from here the one after next is the 2nd, and the one before last
is the -2nd.

Regardless, the code and documentation should match, and it seems
easiest to fix the code rather than explain the exceptions in the man
page.  IIRC that was the impetus behind McIlroy adding the BUGS section;
his peers found it simpler to fix than document.

Cheers, Ralph.
