Luis, can you confirm this on windows?
I don't think the Windows part is relevant but the documentation mistake.
You can confirm this here:
It says "Returns an integer identifier for obj" but then it says fixnum.
I've assigned to Eric Hodel to confirm is a bug in the documentation (or not) and act accordingly.
