(In reply to Jilles Tjoelker from comment #1)
IMO the frequency of the issue raised, and the need of the appearance of the
carrier of the tribal knowledge who can explain the consequences of the change,
make it more reasonable to put this reasoning into the open(2) page.

Jilles, would you, please, formulate your explanation to either BUGS or
STANDARDS section of the man page ?  It would be very useful for now, and even
if both us and SUSvX adjust the behaviour, a historic reference is useful for
very long time.

You are the assignee for the bug.
