Hi Gavin,

I reproduced the issue.

I did not investigate fully why the memory usage was so high, but I've
committed a fix in commit f7e8f926d7.  info was searching for the Info
file for every single node (over 4500 of them) and I suspect that this
also led to memory allocation for the entire file each time. ( Neatly,
4500 * 4.5MB is about 2 GB.)

This use case is important for people who do

   info python3.10 | less

The patch solved the issue on 32bit and amd64. Many thanks!
