I'm trying to set up services, which are in subdirectories of other 
services. This is supported, according to the second paragraph of the 
runsvdir man page:

runsvdir starts a runsv(8) process for each subdirectory,  or
symlink  to a directory, in the services directory dir, up to
a limit of  1000  subdirectories,

In my directory service/ I have:

After running runsvdir service, I expect two runsv instances to be 
running. One for Foo, one for bar. But on my system, only one instance 
for Foo is running, and bar/run is not being executed.

I have runit 2.1.2-29.

Has this feature been removed without updating the manpage?
I did not find anything in the archive.

To test this I used (also attached):
while :; do
	echo -n "FOO ";	date; sleep 3;

while :; do
	echo -n "BAR ";	date; sleep 3;
