Today's CVS snapshot, Wed, 2002 Jun 12  10:20 UTC,
GNU Emacs (i686-pc-linux-gnu, X toolkit)

       By the way, how do you fix an instance of a `plain vanilla' Emacs from
       the current CVS sources so that you can move around an Info file using
       the next, prev, and up key and mouse bindings?

   I think the change below should fix that.  

Yes, it does, at least on a short test.

(The patch partial failed.  The `(defun Info-setup-header-line ()'
segment was not removed from the updated file, but I did that manually.)

   There are some other undesirable things in this code.  For instance,
   the items in the text line have a mouse-face that works, and only
   mouse-2 follows the link.  ...

Miles' suggestion avoids this; for the text line,

    ... put _only_ the `File:' and `Node:' tags in the (displayed) buffer --

His suggestion also removes redundancy and prevents the second line
from looking like a bug.
