Yes, it is a bit of a buglet.  The buglet is not in the doc. extraction tool
though -- it is in the changes to the library modules.

The feature of allowing multiple `:- interface' sections is deliberately
not documented in the language reference manual, and in general should not be
used.  Future implementations of Mercury may not support it.
