@setfilename is not used at all when processing with TeX.  The most 
likely explanation is that the auxiliary files changed between runs of 
TeX.  If you had processed the file again *without* commenting out the 
@setfilename line, then I expect the cross-reference would also have 
been output correctly.

I tested it both with "texi2pdf 2019308.texi" and "makeinfo --pdf 
2019308.texi" and both times TeX is run twice as it should be.

If you run "pdfetex 2019308.texi" just once when 2019308.aux and 
2019308.toc don't exist, then the output is what you got.

What exactly are you doing to process the files?
