I think this is a (documentation?) bug in Texinfo.

"Top" is a reserved node name in Texinfo, and Org Texinfo export has
a mechanism to prevent collision with it. So far so good.

Here, you use "top" node name, which is _not_ supposed to be reserved,
since case in node names is significant. 
See (info "(texinfo)Node Line Requirements").

Apparently, any case combination from "Top" is forbidden. But this is
not documented in the Texinfo manual.

I worked around it, but I suggest to report it upstream, too.

Fixed. Thanks.
