How do I open a specific help page programatically?

WorkbenchHelp.displayHelp();

...always works, opening a window with the "Using the Eclipse
help sytem" page. However,

WorkbenchHelp.displayHelp("/com.example.help/some/doc.html")

...niether opens the help system nor changes the active page. I've tried
combining both calls with no success as well.

I'm able to open specific pages from an Introduction/Welcome screen, Cheet
Sheet, Infopop etc., but not from an ordinary Action within my UI thread.
Am I missing something? Thanks!
