This language in Pub 550 is based on the old ruling I mentioned. I’m not sure whether this is a case where the language remains in the pub because someone at the IRS still believes the ruling makes sense, or is it there because no one has thought about the issue in the time since it was inserted many years ago. All I can say is that in my opinion the ruling, and the example you quote from the pub (which is based on the ruling), are contrary to the clear language of the law and can be ignored.
