I am working with texinfo 6.5 and did not see this issue yet.  Maybe a
bug in texinfo 6.6?

As far as I know the gnulib mercurial clone of Octave


has never really been updated yet, due to a difficult update procedure
and only jwe might have push rights for Octave's gnulib hg subrepo.  It
is still at "c34f677e6117" (17 Mar 2019).


The bigger decision was discussed at bug


before last Christmas to finally get rid of this maintenance "monster"
Octave's gnulib hg subrepo.  Any objections against doing this change soon?
