This probably means your Emacs and the stand-alone Info reader get
Info files from different places.

Maybe your .emacs or site-start.el load other Lisp files, and those
Lisp files modify the list of directories where Emacs searches for
Info files?  That is, look for `load' as well, and then grep those
additional files for `[Ii]nfo'.
