I haven't checked with the version we really have in 8.1-R, but how did 
the guy come up to a fact that the man page is not being updated 
correctly? Many times people get confused because of the footer at the 
end of the man pages rendered online (which says 7.2-R) but that is only 
because the man pages are being rendered on that system, however the 
actual contents are fine. Could you confirm?

It might be that the man pages has not been updated yet, too; although I 
believe that's not the case.
