[New-bugs-announce] [issue3941] Help in IDLE doesn't work correctly

Gregor Lingl report at bugs.python.org

New submission from Gregor Lingl <gregorlingl at users.sourceforge.net>:

>From IDLE either pressing F1 or choosing the menu Help-Python Docs
should open a Help-Window with the docs of the current version. (This
works well for instance in Python 2.5.2) The docs file normally resides
on the local computer in the Doc directory (at least under Windows)

With 2.6rc2 under Windows pressing F1 only opens a Browser with the url
http://www.python.org/doc/current/ which leads to the 2.5.2 documentation.  

It should be linked to the python26.chm file in the Doc directory
