In my laptop, that info node doesn't fit entirely on the screen, but
if I try with its parent node, for example ("(emacs) Incremental
Search") which does fit, I observe the problem you mention: "Top" in
the modeline instead of the expected "All".

Yes, there is a bug somewhere, and is a regression: the 24.2 release does TRT.

I've tried with another manual (GNU Make) and I see the problem there
too (with the trunk, not with the 24.2  release).

So the problem seems to be in Emacs, not in the manual.
