Wrong mailing list ;-)  It's not a Texinfo problem, it's a problem with
Emacs's reformatting of cross-references.

makeinfo _always_ produces either a "::" or a "." at the end of the
@pxref cross-reference, before the closing paren, because those are
the rules of the Info files.  If you look in the emacs-* files with a
pager, you will see that a @pxref with more than one argument always
ends in a period, no matter if it's the in the same or another manual.
