I thought they were fixed.  I still think they are fixed, mostly because
the only problem to which it referred originally was the pathname stuff
that was among the first patches applied after 1.3.1.  If Marc wants to
add more conditions, then by all means add them somewhere so that we
know what needs fixing before the next release.

If we are talking about a feature, sure.  But this is documentation.
Why should we include misleading documentation in our product just
because one person thinks it still applies?  I wouldn't mind it if
there was enough information provided so that I can know when it will
be removed in the future.
