I've fixed it by making Info-try-follow-nearest-node to follow the
information extracted by Info-get-token. Parentheses in URLs are valid
but apparently not very frequent (outside of Wikipedia).

If this change causes trouble with URLs containing parentheses,
perhaps changing the regexp passed to Info-get-token would be an
option; but currently the Emacs-supplied info files do not have any
such URL.
