R-beta: purpose of n in identify() function?

I think I am misunderstanding something about the identify() function.

if we have an example such as this:

> x_1:10
> y_1:10
> plot(x,y)         
> identify(x,y, n=1)
[1] 2 3

I clicked on two points and identify() returned both of them (2 and 3). 

The manual says n is the maximum number of points to be identified.

If I specify n=1, should identify() return a single value?
