I am not surprised that doing this would have problems. I managed to
produce the two files from your shell script but I am not sure what
you mean by "go back and select the other file". What exactly are you
doing within info to try to select the other file? I tried
"g(a.de.info)" and "g(a.info)" and this always seems to work in
opening the right file.
