I understand it.  So according to that:
* <SPC> in node "Related Topics" should take you to node "Macros".
* Conversely, <DEL> in node "Macros" should take you to "Related Topics".

Therefore, if I've jumped from "Macros" to "Related Topics" and then I
type `l', I obviously expect to jump back to "Macros", which is the
last node I've selected.
