New submission from Terry J. Reedy <tjreedy at udel.edu>:

3.2.3rc1: When I click the Python manuals Start Menu icon, the Windows help version of the docs comes up, but with a Script Error box. 

Contents of the box:
<warning sign> A error has occurred in the script on this page
Line  : 1
Char  : 1
Error : The value of the property '$' is null or undefined, not a Function object
Code  : 0
URL   : mk:@MSITStore:C:\<...>\pthon323rc1.chm:/_static/copybuttom.js
Do you want to continue running script on this page?
[yes] [no]

Whether I click yes or no, clicking on anything, for instance, Language Reference, brings up the the error box again. After clicking away the error box, I get what I intended, but having to do that with every click makes that nice form of the doc, which I use daily, unusable. So I think this should be a release blocker.

I did not notice before because I have been using and testing 3.3.0a1.
The chm manual for that works fine, as normal.
I have not loaded 2.7.3rc1. I am on Win7, 64bit.
