Indeed I understand how the Codex works - thanks - however which is it 
meant to return?

WordPress sends out it's password reset email using network_site_url() 
as the URL generator for the password reset form, which to me suggests 
it should return the URL of the current site (and confirm what's in the 
Codex) - not the URL of the parent.

Is the Codex correct and the function buggy? Or is the function correct 
and WordPress always sends reset emails using the master parent/site URL 
rather than the current site?
