Now I found out the reason: my modified setup file was based on a very old
version of "book", and so didn't work well together with the current versions
of other setup files.  I merged my own settings into the new "book", and got
rid of the mysterious extra page.

If I set to @IntroFirstPageNumber 0, so that the first page after the title
page is numbered 1, the error message persists but is harmless.
This leads me to a new suggestion: at least in a book, the title page should
not be counted as an Intro page.  The header and footer options for "intro
start" pages are hardly appropriate for it.
