Does this really strike you as a documentation rather than an
implementation bug ?  (I haven't checked yet whether I can see it in
the code.)

It seems to me that the correct thing to do here would be to change
the code so that the -l was required, like the manpage says.

I see that I'll have to modify the default crontab if I do this, as
I've taken advantage of this bug there.  Hmm.
