bug#11955: 24.1.50; nit about "point" vs "cursor" in error msg

emacs -Q
C-h i
Put the cursor on a menu title such as `Emacs', not on a menu item.
Hit `RET'.
 
You see this user-error message:
 
"Point neither on reference nor in menu item description"
 
Technically, that's not quite correct.  Point is a position.  It is the
cursor position (just before it).  A position is not "on" or "in"
something.  It is more correct to say that the _cursor_ is not on...
