Yes.  Initially, I spotted the redundant "See" in HTML, and when I went
to my computer to fix them, I thought they were already fixed because I
couldn't see them in .info.  I don't know why .info doesn't show the
redundant "See".

Of course Noam, but you should get credit for finding them.  The
attached patch should cover them.
