Would the following patch help?

  \ifhmode\par\fi  % can't be in the midst of a paragraph.

I edited the texinfo.tex file in src/tex and recreated the LM.  No

Thanks.  It was worth a try, and I currently don't have the time for a
more thorough analysis.

Actually, I've just been looking at this, and your patch almost solves the problem - *if I change the correct file*. I already have texinfo installed on my system, and I noticed that when I run it, part of the output is

(./WarningProb.texi (/usr/share/texmf/tex/texinfo/texinfo.tex

so it's looking at a different texinfo.tex than the one in my lily-git directory. This applies whether I run in inside the git directory or not. After a bit of messing about teaching myself how to change permissions so I could edit that file, I made your change to the texinfo.tex. It was successful in moving the text of my test file below the header, but not the box (i.e. it shifted it down about 1 line space).
