Manipulating lists can be quirky at times and require special treatment, especially when copying structures containing lists. The list_create(9F) manpage doesn't have a neat introduction or summary section on the data structure and in particular doesn't point out this peculiar copying behavior, which can instead only be deduced from looking at the list source code. Adding a few paragraphs to the beginning of the manpage should help avoid these trivial mistakes.

Simply viewed the manpage through man(1).
