makeinfo bug

To TexInfo bug catcher:

I have recently updated my system and among the updates is a move from

makeinfo v:4.13 (x86_32) to makeinfo v:5.1 (x86_64)

I have run 'yum update texinfo' and it reports that I am up-to-date.

However, several things which worked in the previous version, are now out to lunch.

The largest of these is that v:5.1 ignores the '--fill-column' option.

This means that 50+ pages of documentation, carefully-formatted for
'--fill-column=78' now look really bad.

A smaller matter:
a) There are visible escape codes at the top of the index page in the .info output file.

I have attached a '.texi' example, which is a much-simplified version of the
document I'm currently working on. I
t demonstrates the problems mentioned above.

See the following:

Ch07_gStringTextTool.texi    lines 33-41 word wrapping error

bug_report.info                      At the top of the 'Index' section: garbage characters (escape sequences?).

If I can help in any way, please let me know.

Thanks for your attention,
Mahlon Smith
