BUG: SO_LINGER + shutdown() does not block?

>From socket(7):

              When enabled, a close(2) or shutdown(2) will not
              return until all queued messages for the socket
              have been successfully sent or the linger timeout
              has been reached.

I'm not seeing shutdown(2) block on a TCP socket. This is Linux kernel
2.2.16 (RH7.0). Is this a kernel bug, a documentation bug, or does it all
work fine and it's a Chris bug?
