Yes, it does, thanks.  It means the EOL format is not the problem.

I have now downloaded
extracted elisp.info from it, and looked at it in "emacs -Q" on my
system.  I cannot reproduce the problem you reported: those 2
cross-references lead me to the description of 'nth', as expected.

So now I'm even more puzzled by your report.  Can you please verify:

  . the Info file you are looking at is from the Emacs 26.0.90 pretest
  . the Emacs binary you use to look at it is from that pretest, as it
    is available now from alpha.gnu.org
