Getting posts by post_name is broken

Getting posts by the post_name, or slug, is currently broken... or the documentation is broken:

var_dump(get_posts( array(
                                'post_name' => 'anyreallyuniquename',
                                'post_status' => 'any'

Why in the world should this be a listing of 5 recent posts?

The correct argument is name rather than post_name, there's an example on the dev reference site. For a full list of arguments, see WP_Query:parse_query()'s documentation but be aware there are some differences in behaviour.

I'll close this ticket off for now but feel free to followup if I'm missing something.
