Yes, `ESC-2 C-h i' (or `M-2 C-h i') works in Emacs before the Emacs 22 release.
Dunno if this change was intentional or is a bug - you might check the NEWS file
to see. If it was not intentional, then you might want to report a bug using
`M-x report-emacs-bug'.

<<I didn't look.  IMHO, it is definitely a bug.>>

In any case, you can still use `C-u C-h i' to do the same thing - it prompts you
for the Info file to use.

<<This works, but there are not even any hints to get you there.
  In fact, the doc for CTL-u seems to imply that ``CTL-u 2'' is
  equivalent to ``Meta-2'', with some fuzzy words following that
  seem to mean, "well, not quite exactly, but pretty much and you
  need to see each individual command to really know".  Obviously,
  it's not especially clear to me.>>


If Emacs crashed, <<nope.>>
