These patches don't work into releases for ages.

I'll correct the .ui and repost cleaning up other issues in a few days

On 649 (personal) -- unaltered

I can not reproduce that.

If I have various Tw documents open, and one of the calls the help
dialogue, and then I close the Tw Editor that called the help dialogue
- so far I have not had a crash when I close the Help Dialogue after
that, I can continue working in other Tw windows no problem -- may be
it will happen to me later for some reason.
