No, you're wrong. What you propose is not the only way to resolve this
"BUG" as you like to call it (rather ironic use of all caps as the name of
the program being not what one would expect seems less of a problem than
the program working incorrectly, which doesn't seem to be the case right

Making hardlinks to vndconfig and the man page, removing the bug section
entry, and adding vndconfig as a command name in the man page will also
aleviate this problem.

Take care,
