(info "(info-stnd) Node Commands") says:

`l' (`history-node')
     Pop the most recently _selected_ node in this window from the node

So it's a bug in the stand-alone reader because it returns to the node
that was not _recently selected_.  This behavior is confusing for users.

I agree that it looks like a bug, but I don't understand why it's coded
explicitly that way.  Perhaps the intention was to implement this behavior
only when the value of `Info-scroll-prefer-subnodes' is non-nil?
