Actually, I'd say the interactive help utility doesn't work. As long
as you don't use it interactively, it works fine. You can do
help(int) (for instance) and so on.

And yes, I know about this. It's listed in "Known Problems". Anything
that tries to read from standard input  will fail. I'm thinking about
fixes, but  it's not a high-priority item at the moment.

       Thanks  for the report.
