Yes, the changed catcode for ~ isn't lasting if you compile a Texinfo
file --- which texi2dvi is primary made for --- but it _is_ lasting when
texi2dvi is used to compile a LaTeX file (something I had noticed with
another problem report a few months ago). This is why I was writing that
the method which I proposed (in essence make the catcoding group local,
and then expand it after-group) is superior: it does not affect the
catcodes outside the command line even with LaTeX (well, I have not
tested it yet).

Anyway, this is not the problem on the table now, we are talking
primarilly about another special character: space.
