Cross references to floats in TeX

Captions of floats are able to create cross-references when processed with
`makeinfo', but not with TeX (or `texi2dvi').

Attached is a Texinfo document that makes a simple cross reference (with
the xref command) to "Top" in the caption command of a float command.
Here is the Info output:

Test float captions with @xref commands

This is a float.

Figure 1: This is the caption with a reference to *Note Top::.

* Menu:

* Figure 1: This is the caption ...:     Figure 1.

But the following is the resulting errors from running the Texinfo file
through TeX:

$ tex float-caption-xref.texi
