There appears to be a redundancy in the description of the "disown"
builtin in bash(1). Version is 4.2.

   disown [-ar] [-h] [jobspec ...]
          [...]  If jobspec is not
          present, and neither -a nor  -r  is  supplied,
          the shell's notion of the current job is used.
          [...]  If no jobspec is present,
          and neither the -a nor the -r option  is  sup‐
          plied, the current job is used.

Here's a patch to remove one of the instances.
