Description Jonathan Larmour 2003-03-04 19:12:12 UTC
Description of problem:

Starting help spawns an xterm (with title "sh") which doesn't disappear.
Evidently to run htmlview. It doesn't even disappear when htmlview exits... it
evidently is running "more" on the htmlview output, and waits for you to press

(And incidentally gnome-help-browser started by htmlview on RHL 7.2 can't even
cope properly with /opt/ecos/ecos-2.0b1/html/index.html - it adds in extra bullets.)
