The r.watershed module documentation has the wrong value for cells that do not get included in a complete watershed.

In the current online r.watershed module's help documentation, there is a conflicting statement to the output generated for the basin parameter.
In the text it says, "0 values indicate that the cell is not part of a complete watershed basin in the current geographic region."
If I run r.watershed on the Elevation sample data and set the threshold to 10000, the output basin will have areas on the edges that do not generate a basin. The values of these areas are null instead of 0 like the documentation makes it sounds like it should get. It makes sense for the values to be null instead of 0 so the documentation needs to be updated.
