The manual says:

   [ head, new = node.insert_after(head, current, new) ]
   The return values are the 'head' and the node 'new'
   If 'head' is initially 'nil'. it will become 'new'.

which indicates to me that it does not work, as otherwise 'head'
would become be more likely to become 'current'. I don't mind
changing that, though. (it looks like both manual entry and
code were copied from insert_before originally).

Best wishes,
