Hi Charlie,

        \bgroup address@hidden
    \thistitle ...nym {NCO} \value {nco-edition} User'
                                                      s Guide

Not an internal limit.  That's about TeX parsing (i.e., catcodes) of the
' char in the @settitle (or maybe the @titlepage).  As if the title is
being printed in math mode.

My first suggestion is to try the current texinfo.tex
(  (This is nothing about
texi2dvi per se, but about texinfo.tex.)  When I tried it, it seemed to
get past that point, though of course I'm missing all the subfiles and
other dependencies.

Unfortunately, I have an idea that it might be happening when a page
break occurs in the middle of a @tex environment, as you speculate, or
maybe an @math expression.  In that case, probably the only way to find
it is by chopping out chapters.  But I may be able to fix it even
without the failing example.  I'll take a look tomorrow if still needed.


P.S. I suggest moving @contents to the beginning, where toc's belong.
P.P.S. The canonical spelling of Texinfo is "Texinfo" :).
