This isn't a direct release from the OasisOLC team.  I wrote that patch.

Make sure your index file in lib/text/help points to help.hlp, not all the
others.  Also, make sure you put the topic of the help entry at the top.


These were in the wizard of Oz.

The argument is lost here, somehow, and then apparently it tries to strlen
this empty string.  I'm not the best with GDB so I may be wrong.  Anyway,
against stock code, olcplus.tgz works perfectly with the exception that I
didn't instruct about the help index file.  you have something changed.
