An undocumented feature at best, and therefore not something I would
want to rely on! At worst, it is terribly confusing for users, as the
doc indicates this should not work. If it appears to work some of the
time, and yet fails other times and offers no documentation to explain
the difference, then it sets up a dangerous expectation in users' minds
that it *should* work reliably, and when it fails, will cause
frustration and/or spurious bug reports.
Either way, it is a bug in man.
