What about @verb?  I have no idea what @verb inside @w does, but I think
that it would be better not to worry about this type of construct and
instead warn.  It would also be in line with the manual

    It is not reliable to use '@verb' inside other Texinfo constructs.
 In particular, it does not work to use '@verb' in anything related to
 cross-referencing, such as section titles or figure captions.

It is likely that \verb in \hbox breaks in LaTeX and I wouldn't be
surprised if it did not work in TeX either.
