[GRASS-dev] v.split: what is 'vertices' for?

I haven't found anything relevant in the manual, lists archives, the BT
or the source code, so I'm asking here.
There is a straight line made of only 2 nodes:
$ v.info -t line
And it has a category assigned:
$ v.category -g line option=report
1 line 1 1 1
I want to add a vertex to it.
According to the manual:
Maximum segment length.
Maximum number of vertices in segment.
There are 2 vertices (nodes) currently. Trying to add a vertex between
$ v.split input=line output=line_split vertices=3
Checking line_split in v.digit proves there are still only 2 vertices -
the nodes themselves; the 3rd vertex in not added.
No matter what is the 'vertices' set to, the outcome is the same. Is
that OK? What am I missing to understand what is the 'vertices' option for?
Please don't suggest workarounds and stuff. I only want to know what's
up with v.split.
