Just discovered this.

IMHO, this massive breakage needs to be documented (in allcaps) in the
FC5 Release notes:

Completely disagree. This is a long standing change and not specific to Fedora Core 5 at all. Release notes is about major differences between releases and shouldnt be extended to provide all kinds of general information.

You can disagree all you want, but this is a change from FC4 to FC5:

fc4% sort +2 < /var/log/messages | head -1
Mar  7 00:27:35 ti63 smartd[2187]: Device: /dev/sda, Temperature changed -2 Celsius to 35 Celsius since last report

rawhide% sort +2 < /var/log/messages | head -1
sort: open failed: +2: No such file or directory

This seems unrelated to the man page entry you quoted. Can you find more information on this and provide us the content?
