That probably indicates that it's miswritten.  If you could provide us
with a rewritten version of the text which wouldn't confuse you, it would
be most helpful.

Never use the buffer list for such debugging things.  Use C-x b instead.
After all, you don't debug all the time, so you don't want those things to
clutter the buffer-list.
More specifically, the leading space acts very much like a leading .
in file names.

Instead of reasoning I generally prefer to replace the executable
with another one and see if it is changed in the same way in both
cases.  I don't trust my ability to reason about such things.
