Dear all,

(please keep Cc)

it seems that info 6.1 lost the ability to dump the start page
into an output file:

        $ info --output foobar coreutils

properly dumps the coreutils page into foobar, but

        $ info --output foobar

does *not* dump the dir/root node.

This breaks completion in some shells, as they use

        info --output - 

to determine the possible nodes.
