Error in comment in 'hello.c'

I noticed a bug in 'hello.c'. At line 57 of hello.c revision 1.26
<http://cvs.savannah.gnu.org/viewcvs/hello/src/hello.c? rev=1.26&root=hello&view=auto>, a comment states:

  /* Even exiting has subtleties.  The /dev/full device on GNU/Linux
     can be used for testing whether writes are checked properly.  For
     instance, hello >/dev/null should exit unsuccessfully.  On exit,
     if any writes failed, change the exit status.  This is
     implemented in the Gnulib module "closeout".  */

I think the phrase

   "For instance, hello >/dev/null should exit unsuccessfully."
should read:

   "For instance, hello >/dev/full should exit unsuccessfully."
