Two questions if I may. First, what happens if two copies of the IDE are 
open? Are there two separate lhelp instances, and do they track correctly?

Second, when lhelp is invoked by F1 (or direct equivalent), could .chm 
files be loaded in order of relevance so as to get /something/ useful 
visible ASAP?
