[Lazarus] Some IDE/LHelp issues

Maybe someone can help with a few issues around LHelp in the IDE:

1) When LHelp opens (regardless if opens with Tools->CHM-Help or F1 
context help) it opens with 11 tabs.
Some of them have a caption, some of them are [unknown]. The [unknown] 
ones come up with an error message "ms-its:xyz.chm::/index.html not found!"

2) One of [unknown] tabs is completely empty: 
"ms-its:toc.chm::/index.html not found!"

3) There are two lcl tabs. One show a message "Loaded: 
ms-its:lcl.chm::/index.html in ... ms", the other one doesn't show a 
load message.

3) There's no possibility to search in all files simultanously. May be 
this is the missing toc.chm::/index.html?

4) The first context search is a racing car. All following context 
searches are a bicycle. Time for a coffee.

I'd like to check for this.

Is there any documentation about the structure of the chm files 
reagarding the missing index.html?
What's the meaning of the database definition fields in 
Tools-Settins-Help? There are entries for 8 databases. What about the 
missing ones.
How does the IDE calls LHelp?

Any ideas?
