Let's go with poorly worded then. (Actually I don't do this, I use streaming replication, where I don't have to copy the WAL files because the standby picks up the ones that are needed.)

Unless I misread his earlier post, he is starting the backup, copying files, stopping the backup, and expecting those transactions (between start & stop) to be applied, even though files changed during that time (including WAL files) have not all been copied. Again, unless I misread his earlier post, he is *not* copying WAL that was generated between start & stop.
