well i think this is partially due to the reference section 
reorganization ... also <indexentry> tags that weren't in the proper 
place since whenever. previously with the more linear lay-out the 
<indexentry> the tag could appear in the section just before the /real/ 
landing place so you wouldn't have to scroll up slightly to be at the 
beginning of the target section. the re-org was done hastily in that 
when the section was moved, care wasn't taken to make sure that the tag 
was also moved. having said all that i /have/ fixed those problems as 
i've came across them, but have postponed the herculean task to ferret 
out /all/ of the problematic tags
