The stand-alone Info reader always, since day one, canonicalized any
whitespace in node names.

> If yes, should info.el do the same

Yes, it definitely should.  And it already does, just not
consistently.  E.g., if, instead of typing RET on that menu line, you
type "m RET", you get to the right node without any error messages.

I'm not sure this is TRT.  First, we should convert _any_ whitespace,
not just a sequence of SPC characters, to a single SPC.  Second, I
think it would be better to have a single function for this job and
call it from all the places that need to produce a canonical node
name.  I see at least one other place (`Info-extract-menu-node-name')
where we need to do the same, and possibly one more in
`Info-fontify-node'.  If we do this in each place individually, we
will have inconsistent bugs, whereas we want _consistent_ bugs ;-)

Finally, I think the right place to do this is in Info-find-node, not
Info-find-node-2.

Does this mean that info (GNU texinfo) 4.13 treats a sequence of spaces
in the names as one space character?  If yes, should info.el do the same
with a patch like this:

=== modified file 'lisp/info.el'

Please describe exactly what actions triggered the bug
and the precise symptoms of the bug:

- (info "(bison)")   ;; version 2.4.1
- search for TOC item "Secure?  Conform?"
- press RET
- => "No such node or anchor: Secure?  Conform?"

(Probably) relevant bits from the info file:

| [tim@passepartout ~/src/emacs]$ zgrep 'Secure\?' /usr/share/info/bison.info.gz
| * Secure?  Conform?::           Is Bison POSIX safe?
| * Secure?  Conform?::           Is Bison POSIX safe?
| File: bison.info,  Node: Multiple start-symbols,  Next: Secure? Conform?,  Prev: Implementing Gotos/Loops,  Up: FAQ
| File: bison.info,  Node: Secure? Conform?,  Next: I can't build Bison,  Prev: Multiple start-symbols,  Up: FAQ
| 11.6 Secure?  Conform?
| File: bison.info,  Node: I can't build Bison,  Next: Where can I find help?,  Prev: Secure? Conform?,  Up: FAQ
| Node: Secure? Conform?364602
| [tim@passepartout ~/src/emacs]$

Note the one vs. two spaces between "Secure?" and "Con-
form?".  The link works with info (GNU texinfo) 4.13.  The
bug is also present in a Emacs snapshot from early February.
