I thought it is caused by null HelpCtx but that can't be the case.

Comment 4 Jiri Kovalsky 2002-11-27 11:32:55 UTC
This is very serious defect and should be resolved as soon as
possible. Raising priority since this is gonna be Q-build showstopper.

Problem occured somewhere between builds NetBeans-dev-20021125-1626
and night build from Nov 26th. There was no change in javahelp module
and many changes in usersguide module. And, if I replace
usersguide.jar (from Nov 26th) with the older one (Nov 25th),
everything works.

Not sure, where is the problem, but probably somewhere in usersguide
module. Reassigning.

I made a bad checkin (malformed xml file). Fixed in trunk a few hours 
Comment 8 Jiri Kovalsky 2002-11-28 09:58:13 UTC
Can you Patrick integrate your fix to QBE200211270100 branch too, so
that after both showstoppers are fixed we can promote Q-build ? Thanks.
Comment 9 Patrick Keegan 2002-11-28 13:58:12 UTC
fixed in QBE200211270100 
Comment 10 Jiri Kovalsky 2002-11-29 13:45:53 UTC
Petre, could you please verify this ? Thanks.
Comment 11 pzajac 2002-11-29 15:00:18 UTC
