Thanks, it seems to work.

However, I see an annoying delay when going to a different node.  For
example, in the Emacs Lisp manual, go to the "Index" node, move to the
end of the index, type RET on one of the last entries, then type 'l'
to go back.  Bot going to Index and going back causes a visible delay,
which is about 1.5 sec here (this is a Core-i7 box).

Dies this have something to do with how you remove the CR characters
in the current trunk?

Yes, different-size preambles are a PITA.
