o bug report to EMACS info viewer.
o info node (texinfo) Node Line Requirements

Position of problem

When there is a multiple space range within a node reference inside a menu entry of a texinfo file, then these multiple spaces are not collapsed to a single space when the info file is produced.

This is the the case only for menu entry, for other node references like node next or previous pointers, or for @ref and suchlikes, the multiple-space collapsing seems to work ok.

Consequences of problem

Some info viewer cannot follow the link in such a menu entry. See reference 1 of this report.
