Thanks for the bug report, this is now fixed in CVS. Note that you reported 
version 2.3.27 on your bug report; it's not a good idea to use docs that don't 
match the version of software you're using. I suggest you upgrade to 2.3.39 at 
least and use the docs bundled in that release, or switch to 2.4.6.
