David Petrou <address@hidden> is right and I was wrong.  My test
file does not work with frenchspacing.  My apoloigies, I looked at the
wrong output window, and looked too quickly.

All between-word spaces are removed.

\frenchspacing  does not make the buggy output;  \globaldefs = 1  does that.
\frenchspacing  does nothing.

I have been reading the TeXbook and texinfo.tex but cannot figure out
what is going on.

TeX Version 3.14159 (Web2C 7.3.1)
Texinfo version 2001-06-20.16

Here is my test file:

\input texinfo   @c -*-texinfo-*-
@comment %**start of header
@settitle T1
@comment %**end of header

\globaldefs = 1
@end tex

@comment  node-name,  next,  previous,  up
@node top, Chapter One, (dir), (dir)
@top Test Top
@end ifinfo

* Chapter One::                 
* Chapter Two::                 
@end menu

@comment  node-name,  next,  previous,  up
@node Chapter One, Chapter Two, top, top
@chapter Chapter One

Contents of chapter 1.

When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom, not

These restrictions translate to certain responsibilities for you if
you distribute copies of the software, or if you modify it.
