When my plugin was installed on eclipse 3.6, context sensitive Help would display for the extensions to the Share Project wizard when the '?' was selected at the bottom of the page. When we upgraded to eclipse 3.6.2 we get a null pointer exception for the same action, see below. Please advise if I should report this as a bug. It also occurs in eclipse 3.7. For the rest of our views, and dialogs pressing F1 displays eclipse default Help. Only for the wizard is this a problem. Thanks.

java.lang.NullPointerException

Thanks for reporting this. I filed https://bugs.eclipse.org/355041 for
you. Until there is a fix you can simply set the wizard title in your
code to workaround the problem.
