   Your change broke a lot of *note .... :: links where the :: is not
   followed by a space, like these:

           (*note some note::)
           some text, *note some note::, more text

   Try C-h i m elisp RET i signal RET TAB RET

   I've installed a fix to CVS to stop searching for the end of the
   reference when a comma, period, semicolon, or right parenthesis
   follows the last colon.  

thanks for catching this.

   However, I'm not sure this the right fix.  It would probably be better
   to specify the characters which shall cause a continued search if they
   follow a colon, but I'm not sure what characters to include...

if i understand correctly, you mean to replace while-not, w/ simply
while.  initially i tried something like:

 (while (looking-at ":*\\sw") ...)

but testing against elisp index fails for "&rest" and anything else w/
chars not in the word-constituent syntax class.  unless there is a way
to create a syntax class that is \sw plus \s- plus \s_ minus ":", i
think we are stuck w/ explicitly enumerating trailing context.  the
fixed info.el appears to be enough for now; we just need to track
makeinfo (x)ref rendering (not a big deal -- i don't think that is
changing very much).
