the behaviour of the L command is unsatisfying

In the stand-alone info reader, the behaviour of the L (last)
command is not as I would expect.

For example, run 'info/ginfo doc/texinfo.info -n Internationalization'
and then type 2 followed by as many spaces as needed to reach section
18.  Then type L.  It brings you back to section 17.  No, that is not
where I was last: I was last in 17.2.  I think L should bring me back
to there.

(Of course I could use in this case PageUp or Shift+Space to get back
to the preceding section, but those two mess up the trail.  When using
Shift+Space to back up, then consecutives L will bring me back to 17,
the tail of 17.2, and 17.  When using PageUp, L goes back to 17, 18,
17, tail of 17.2, 17.  Madness!)
