I didn't take any notes in reading the Short Sun books, alas.  (Or hooray.)
So I don't remember.  I remember the discussion we were having around here
as each book came out, and I thought that at one thread more than one
person was agreeing with a sense of "fly lie" . . . I know I brought up the
"limited teleporation" notion at least once . . . the scenes in the text
had to do with N questioning an inhumu/a about the whole process, and s/he
(probably she; so it was probably in IGJ rather than RTTW) became coy and
evasive as he pressed harder.

Maybe this thread would show up in a search of the archives.  Sorry I can't
be of more help!
