Well, nevermind. I just realized that I only checked my local manpages,
which are version 4.15, whereas the online version is 5.05, and the
online release no longer has a Bugs section, instead inlining the
information into the Description section. The only mention of writer
recursion in the online version is in the description of
PTHREAD_RWLOCK_PREFER_WRITER_NP. That also probably means to say reader.
