[erlang-bugs] Documentation of group_leader seems to be wrong

The documentation of group_leader/2 says:

group_leader(GroupLeader, Pid) -> true


GroupLeader = Pid = pid()

Sets the group leader of Pid to GroupLeader. Typically, this is used when a processes started from a certain shell should have another group leader than init. 

As far as I can tell by experiment, though, the arguments are the other way around. I've checked this on the online documentation, as well as that documentation that came with R12-B.
