[Lazarus] F1 for help doesn't work under OSX latest v1.4 release

I have Lazarus v1.4 installed (downloaded release from SourceForge). I
place the edit cursor on QuestionDlg() in my source code and press F1. I
get the LHelp, but it has "RTL (Runtime Library)" highlighted after
LHelp opens.

Manually browsing LCL section of help doesn't have Dialogs unit listed
anywhere in the Contents treeview. I tried "Routines by Unit", "Classes
and Objects by Unit" and "Alphabetical Routines List". Nothing.

Index tab and typing "QuestionDlg" doesn't show anything either.

Search tab and typing "QuestionDlg" doesn't show anything.

Yet if I mouse over QuestionDlg() in the source code I see plenty of
help in the tooltip.

Now if I use DocView (and lcl.inf generated back in 2011) and I search
for "QuestionDlg" I instantly see the relevant help from the Dialogs unit.

I assume it is safe to say this a bug? If so, what do I file it under?
LHelp, IDE, Documentation, CHM?
