Anyway, what does the texinfo manual say about @-commands in node

I think this bit is what you are after:


@-commands in node names are not allowed. This includes punctuation characters that are escaped with a address@hidden, such as @ and {, and accent commands such as ‘@'’.

Yeah, that looks familiar.

Now, we _know_ that the texinfo manual isn't always accurate, just
like we know that our own manuals aren't always accurate.  But in
this case, I don't think there's any harm in following it.  Users
never see the @node names; they only see the @section names, which
_do_ allow @commands.

James, could you remove any @ symbols in @node names?  Doing
something like
  grep "@node.*@" Documentation/* -r
would probably be useful.

This has been patched and pushed and the CG updated to reflect this in 4.3.3.
