|Context-sensitive help on wizard dialogs: sometimes appears, sometimes not [message #623259]

I have context sensitive help pages assigned to each page of a |
multi-page wizard dialog.
Sometimes the wizard pages will appear when the (?) is clicked, and
other times they do not. When they do not appear, there doesn't seem
to be any indication of a problem (nothing written to log file) -- it's
just as if there was no help for that page.
I haven't yet figured out exactly what the pattern is. However, a few
things I've noticed:
- If a help page appears fine, and I close it, and then go to the next
page in the wizard -- if I hit 'Back' to return to the page and try to
display the help again, it frequently does not appear.
- If a file page does not appear, and I go to a previous page in the
wizard and bring up help there, and then hit Next >, then the help
page for the next dialog page (which couldn't be brought up using the
(?) button) will be loaded when navigating to the page.
So there seems to be some weird connection between wizard navigation and
help page loading that is different than just loading the help for the
"current" wizard page.
