The problem can be found in many places in docs -- tipically, where 
there is a function/method with name identical to builtin name (or 
sometimes to another function/method within the same module -- see: 
#6575): links leads to te latter but should lead to the former.

One example -- open():

It's hard to find all such place by hand; probably it's a job for a 
script...

I made an exhaustive search for all builtins; should now be fixed in
r74207. Thanks for making me do it properly :)
