System help in NetBeans 7.1.1 is not context sensitive for "Add Instance..." dialog called from "Mobility Deployment" window. The Help window gets opened but it does not display desired content user needs help with.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Install full distribution of NetBeans IDE 7.1.1 RC build #201202141941.
2. Invoke "Tools > Mobility Deployment" from main menu.
3. Press "Add Instance..." button and then "Help".
5. Help window will get opened but the content panel will show default "This
window contains the master set of all installed documentation..." message or
previously displayed help page.
