It doesn't look like . here, when I read your mail.

There are 2 issues here, none of them a bug in Emacs per se:
. The Info file you are looking at was produced by Texinfo 6.0,
which produced the ellipsis in code segments, which is a bug (it
was fixed in Texinfo 6.1);
. The Courier font, as displayed on your system, produces a glyph
for the ellipsis character that looks bad.
I see none of these 2 problems on my system. In any case, I see no
Emacs bug here.
