grephistory doesn't behave as stated in its man-page

the man page grephistory(1) states this:

     If messageid  cannot be found  in the database,  the program
     prints ``Not  found'' and exits with a  non-zero status.

But, that's not the case.  The return value of grephistory *is zero*,
even if the message ID could *not* be found:

> grephistory '<not at there>'; echo $?
grephistory: not found

I'm using INN 2.4.1 on Slackware LINUX 9.1.
