Double hyphens in variable names.

I'm trying to document the variable `imenu--index-alist' in the Lisp
Reference Manual.  When I write this in the Texinfo source file:

@defvar imenu--index-alist

Texinfo produces an info file that has this:

 - Variable: imenu-index-alist

Note that the double hyphen is reduced to a single hyphen.  Am I
missing something, or is this a bug in Texinfo?

What is the significance of a double hyphen in a symbol name anyway?
