Yes.  WinXP.

I agree that it should, and my blame pointer is fixed at Microsoft, not
with the python-dev people.

That seems unlikely since it's the one that ships with XP.  "Microsoft
Help Control Version 5.2.3750.0" is what the about box has (and don't
even start me on progams like this and Eudora that don't put close at
the bottom of the right-click taskbar menu).  (Note that apart from this
problem, and control-f not presenting an option to find text in the
current page, I do like the new help.  And I can always go back to using
a browser).

Is it Win98 that it works for you on?  Maybe it works on slightly old
versions, but in new versions, it has been 'corrected' not to work?
(Which maybe means I can find an older version and use that...)
