I agree.  I put @tracingpages on and got the following in the log file for
a test file:-

This is for the second page.  I believe it was the @penalty 10000 after
the first @hbox that suppressed the page break.  I believe this came from
the definition of @image.

I also found the same problem with @example and I expect other display
environments would have been affected too.

I've attempted to fix it with the following change (commit a9aacb0b39):

ff --git a/doc/texinfo.tex b/doc/texinfo.tex

     % Usually we'll have text after the image which will insert
     % \parskip glue, so insert it here too to equalize the space
     % above and below.

It would be helpful if you could test it as TeX's page breaking can be
difficult to understand.
