after editing the file a bit (so it didn't need other files), I
processed it with that version of texinfo.tex. Unfortunately, I wasn't
able to reproduce the error.

OK, here's a smaller example taken from the Emacs source code. Unpack the attached tarball in a fresh directory, copy the latest Gnulib texinfo.tex into it, and run the shell command 'texi2pdf bovine.texi'. On my platform (Fedora 23 x86-64, texi2pdf (GNU Texinfo 6.0) 6363) the output says './bovine.toc:1: TeX capacity exceeded, sorry [input stack size=5000].' Full output log attached.

Thanks for looking into the problem.
