 In the node Using Variables::Appending, trying to follow the text,
 "(*note Setting Variables: Setting., for a full explanation of `:=')"
 makes info complain about not finding the node "Setting.", with a
 period. It seems punctuation is not allowed after the @pxref command
 in texinfo.

 One solution is the attached patch, which removes the offending
 comma.  Although, it makes the info output look stupid since there is
 a period in the middle of the parenthetical. It should look OK in
 printed output though. Another would be to use xref instead, but that
 apparently causes the wrong capitalization in printed output.
