API Clarification on when CurrentSnapshot is empty

The page at vSphere 5.5 Documentation Center suggests the following.

to a VirtualMachineSnapshot

Current snapshot of the virtual machine

This property is set by calling Snapshot.revert or VirtualMachine.createSnapshot. This property will be empty when the working snapshot is at the root of the snapshot tree.

I want to understand what the text in red really means? In other words, when is CurrentSnapshot property empty? On a brand new vm, without any snapshot, I know its empty. But on that vm, once I create my first snapshot, the property is not empty. What exactly does 'working snapshot' mean?

Thanks Rags
