Yes. This made the rejects file group a pain in the ass since I already
had the aedit patch in place when I added hedit.

I thought hedit wasn't saving also. When I poked around, I discovered the
save was being written to a file called (I think) help.hlp, which is otherwise
unused as best I can tell.

Looked to me like the help index was being build from the files listed in
lib/text/help/index, so I removed the existing list and replaced the index
contents with help.hlp, and things started working. (Note, this must be done
_after_ using hedit with a save, to properly create the initial help.hlp
