I got the same.  Unfortunately, this kind of thing isn't tested that much.

If you can override the paper size when printing, you 
should be fine.  I suspect the page width is being set incorrectly inside
the definition of \pagesizes.  When I add 1 inch to the paper width, the
text meets the right edge of the page exactly.

I did not choose 1 inch arbitrarily here: by default, the top-left 
corner of a page in DVI format is 1 inch from the left edge and 1 inch 
from the top edge.

This may still not be an appropriate fix as the margins are wrong (large 
left margin and zero right margin). As far as I know there isn't a good, 
documented way to change the page margins to any value you want.

Note that in the past the page size parameters were not placed in the 
DVI file by texinfo.tex, so the text would only have been cut off at the 
right margin for the PDF file. You would have to have given the paper size 
separately when printing the DVI file.

I tried processing the same test file for DVI output but when I look at 
the result in xdvi there is more margin on the right-hand side. I am 
probably missing something in the xdvi man page.
