Oops... The fix with changed manpage and info document is locally done since 
hours and just by accident not commited yet.

To but this in a separate macro is a obvious and trivial solution of course.
I wanted to make things not more complicated as necessary and wanted to changes 
as little lines as possible.  Thats why by intention did decide against this 
trivial macro.  The repeated lines make it clear at once what happens there 
instead of having one further indirection.

What if someone says the vertical space is wrong there?  Then code lines had 
been changed which have nothing to do with this problem.  I would commit it as 
initially suggested, but ok--I wait if others prefer to introduce this trivial
