I'm sorry for inaccuerate wording.  I was also talking about INFOPATH
(or its Emacs equivalent).

No, I mean the @direntry menu entries.  That is, selecting the entries
from the DIR file found in the first directory on INFOPATH might leave
us with wrong entries.

The text after (filename)nodename might be different, as well as the
menu entry name:

 * Foo: (foo)bar.     The GNU Foo program.


 * Foobar: (foo)bar.  The One and Only GNU FooBar program.

(Not that this is crucial, but still...)
