I have a document which contains something like this:

...

for more information, refer to <xref linkend="mysect"
endterm="mysect.title"/>.

..

<refsect1 id="mysect"><title
id="mysect.title">Title</title>
...
</refsect1>

When converting this document to a manpage, I'd expect
the xref part to render as

...refer to TITLE...

However, what I currently get is

... refer to [xref to refsect1].

The result looks the same when using one of the other
xref linking options.

    I have attempted to fix this. i think it works, but please test
    it and let me know.

    I apologize for the unforgivably long delay in fixing this.
    Going
    forward, I will try to turn around fixes more quickly.

    Well, I don't have any real documents anymore that would
    require this, but a quick test did work fine. I'm not sure
    whether it's easily feasible, but it would be nice if refs
    to refsect1 headings would capitalize the title just like
    refsect1.title does. Thanks anyway.

    I agree. I opened up a separate Tracker item:

    http://sourceforge.net/tracker/index.php?func=detail&aid=1215547&group_id=21935&atid=516914

    And I just checked in a change to implement it. Check
    the latest snapshot if you're interested.
