[erlang-questions] make_ref bug or feature?

I got a question from Ivo Danihelka about make_ref().
Isn't make_ref() supposed to generate "an almost unique reference" the
"Returns an almost unique reference.
The returned reference will re-occur after approximately 2^82
calls; therefore it is unique enough for practical purposes."

They *both* print the same thing - this violates the principle of
(I thought I'd have to start 2^82 shells :-)
Is this a bug or a feature?
