"Computers are good at following instructions, but not at reading your mind."
--D.E. Knuth, The TeXbook, in an example showing an accented period :).

Sadly, I can't think of any plausible way in TeX to check if the
character following an accent is a space.  Alper, could makeinfo check
for this?

Interestingly, right now, makeinfo "accents" the 2, rather than the space.

It would be best to make it a warning, I agree.

Thanks for reporting it.
